Title: Testing for salience effects in choices under risk

Abstract: We design and run an experiment to isolate salience effects in choices under risk as defined by Bordalo et al. (2012b, 2013a). Our results are in line with their behavioral hypothesis when prospects’ actual probabilities are replaced by decision weights distorted in favor of salient consequences.

Organizers: Marcel Smolka and Jonas Maibom
