PhD Defence: Trond Halvorsen
On Friday 31 May 2013 Trond Halvorsen will hold a trial lecture on a prescribed topic, and defend his thesis for the PhD degree at NHH.
The topic of the thesis is the influence of moral motivation on economic decisions. In many cases people behave as if they care about moral arguments, but it is often hard to tell whether this is actually the case.
Through three economic experiments, the thesis illustrates how moral motives interact with other motives when subjects consider sharing their money with anonymous strangers.
The trial lecture and thesis defense will be open to the public. Copies of the thesis will be available from: email@example.com.
