- The Coin Strategy and Charitable Giving
A shorter summary: I ran a field experiment on charitable giving. 16,000 solitication letters were sent, and only one donation was received. I still like the idea and the experimental design though.
I teach Public Choice Theory in every fall semester for Bachelors, and Public Economics in every spring semester for Masters.
