    Sammanfattning : In this paper, I evaluate whether salience induces loss aversion among taxpayers. Using annual register data from 2013-2017 for taxpayers reporting tradable securities, E-filing taxpayers are shown to exhibit bunching on the surplus side of the zero final tax balance. A corresponding excess mass is not found for paper filers. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Background: Kahneman and Tversky (1974, 1979 & 1992) argue that individuals are bound to numerous behavioral biases that may lead to the emergence of different irrational behaviors. This is often observed with even a higher degree among participants of financial and stock markets as agents such as investors are frequently exposed to significant level of risk and uncertainty (Kahneman, 2013; Kahneman, Knetsch & Thaler, 1991; Kahneman & Tversky, 1974, 1979, 1992).

  3. 3. You Say You Want a Revolution - A Model on the Implications of Prospect Theory on Voting Behaviour

    D-uppsats, Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Författare :Cristina Altomare; Agron Nuredini; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Prospect Theory; Voting Model; Uncertainty; Expectations; Disruption;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis we create a voting model with a prospect theory foundation, introducing reference-dependent risk preferences, loss aversion, and probability weighting in the individual utility function. Classical voting models represent perfectly rational voters, we argue that voter behaviour can be better modelled by introducing prospect theory preferences, especially recent political trends.
