  2. The Economics of Fairness

    The Economics of Fairness

    Edited by Alexander W. Cappelen, Bertil Tungodden
    A growing literature in economics has studied how fairness considerations shape human behavior. This research collection comprises forty key theoretical and empirical contributions spanning the last four decades, along with influential related work in normative economics. These papers show that the fairness motive is essential for understanding human behavior in a wide range of settings, such as markets, bargaining, and redistributive situations. They document large heterogeneity in what people view as fair and the importance people attach to fairness, displaying how a concern for fairness develops in childhood and manifests itself in the brain. Together with an original introduction by the editors, this volume will be a valuable research tool for those interested in the fascinating field of the economics of fairness. Learn More

  14. Agents, Assumptions and Motivations Behind REDD+

    Agents, Assumptions and Motivations Behind REDD+

    Simone Lovera-Bilderbeek
    ​It was hoped that by paying forest dependent peoples and countries for their ‘service’ of conserving their forests, REDD+ would lead to a reduction in deforestation greenhouse gases. The complexities have, however, left some ambiguities. It was never agreed who would pay for the programme, and it has been criticised as ignoring the root causes of forest loss. Considering the motivations of those who promoted REDD+ this book proposes remedies to its shortfalls and recommends more efficient, equitable and effective conservation policies. Learn More
