Twenty-seven Norwegian police managers were shadowed and interviewed. We found that constructions of manoeuvring space presupposed that managers balanced dilemmas. We ...
  • On rational forward-looking behavior in economic geography: An experimental analysis 

    Barreda-Tarrazona, Iván; Kundu, Tapas; Østbye, Stein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-02-05)
    This paper adapts the canonical New Economic Geography model for experimental testing of the model's behavioral assumptions by developing a finite-player, finite-horizon dynamic game of migration. Our analysis gives distinctive predictions when migration is consistent with myopic behavior (MB) and when it is consistent with sequentially rational or perfect forward-looking behavior (FB). These ...
