New book "L’Economie Comportementale du Marché du Travail" published by Sciences-Po - Les Presses, collection "Sécuriser l’Emploi" A large diversity of psychological and cognitive dimensions influence behavior on the labor market, such as loss aversion, prejudices, self-confidence, inequity aversion, risk attitudes, intertemporal inconsistencies, etc. Taking these factors into account together with economic incentives and institutions should help designing more effective labor market policies. Behavioral economics contribute to a better understanding of search behavior on the labor market, discrimination by employers, incentives and selection effects of compensation policies, and the role of trust and non-monetary incentives in the building of relational contracts. Research Professor at CNRS, Marie Claire Villeval is a member of Groupe d’Analyse et de Théorie Economique (GATE) at the University of Lyon. She is also co-editor of the Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization.
