About me

Erik Angner is Professor of Practical Philosophy at Stockholm University. Due to serious mission creep he has two PhDs: one in History and Philosophy of Science and one in Economics, both from the University of Pittsburgh. He is the author of two books — Hayek and Natural Law (2007) and A Course in Behavioral Economics (2nd ed. 2016) — and a multitude of articles in the intersection of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics.

    This study employs a novel experimental paradigm to examine crowdout effects in volunteering. Using a framework modelled upon money donation experiments, we examine the impact of ‘forced’ volunteering on the amount of time volunteered. We find that subjects exposed to forced volunteering on the mean voluntarily donate less time than subjects in the control condition. Among religious subjects, the crowdout is 52.8%, suggesting warm-glow giving. Among non-religious subjects, the crowdout is 138%, implying altruistic giving. Thus, policies mandating volunteer activity may be associated with sizeable crowdout effects and might have heterogeneous effects across subpopulations.

    A Course in Behavioral Economics 2e is an accessible and self-contained introduction to the field of behavioral economics. The author introduces students to the subject by comparing and contrasting its theories and models with those of mainstream economics. Full of examples, exercises and problems, this book emphasises the intuition behind the concepts and is suitable for students from a wide range of disciplines.
