Description

Economic Rewards to Motivate Blood Donations, Rewarding Volunteers: A Field Experiment, and Societal support for monetary compensation for plasma and kidney donors.


Prof. Mario Macis is a professor of economics at Johns Hopkins University. His research interests include how economic incentives interact with psychological factors and social norms to drive individual behavior and policy-relevant outcomes. In particular, he studies the role of incentives in shaping pro-social behavior and attitudes toward morally controversial exchanges. Recently, these two lines of work converged into a research agenda aimed at understanding what determines social support for market-based solutions to social problems.
