Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, in-person seminars are open to the public.

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom if the event is hybrid.

About this event

Teams face a variety of strategic situations. It is socially beneficial for teams to cooperate in productive but not in corrupt ones. However, cooperation in one situation may depend on expectations of cooperation in others. We identify when it is that sustaining socially desirable cooperation necessitates undesirable cooperation. We characterize how cooperation is shaped by the absolute and relative payoffs to cooperation across various tasks, as well as the frequency with which people are reshuffled across teams and whether teams can be specialized in the tasks they face.

Economic Theory Seminars are held on Thursdays in term time at 15:30-17:00, both ONLINE and IN PERSON in SAL 3.05.

Seminar organisers: Dr Andrew Ellis and Dr Christopher Sandmann.
