Oriana Bandiera, Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics, presented the opening lecture in the 2017-18 Behavioral Policy Speaker Series on Thursday, September 21 at 4:30 p.m. in the Julis Romo Rabinowitz Building, Room 399.

Bandiera specializes in the design of field experiments to evaluate how individual behavior is shaped by monetary incentives and social relationships. In her talk entitled “Social Incentives in Organizations,” Bandiera reviewed evidence on social incentives in organizations and proposed a systematic categorization of them based on the nature of the social group and on the nature of the social preferences that underpin the incentives.

Nathan Matias, a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Paluck Lab, liveblogged the talk.  His summary can be found on
