Recent Working Papers

The University of Wyoming supports my research through the Paul Lowham research endowment. This endowment allows me to construct laboratory markets, which provide the data for hypotheses testing. Dale Menkhaus and I also have received U.S. Department of Agriculture grant support to conduct experiments on behavior in auctions and private negotiation. Latest versions of work-in-progress include:
