Tom Vogl: Differential Fertility, Human Capital, & Development
a PSC Small Fund Research Project
Investigator: Susan Godlonton
This project examines corrupt behavior by individual employees working on short-term contracts in a developing country, and uses exogenous variation in the monitoring rate to produce precise, well-identified measures of individual responses to employer strategies about monitoring. Specifically, I measure how employees change the extent to which they steal from the firm in response to varying degrees of monitoring in the work force.
