Brownbag Seminar: Meritocracy and Persistent Luck

Online Event
Tuesday, May 25, 2021, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm


Meritocracy rewards people for their achievement. However, higher achievement can be reached by putting in more effort, but also by just being more talented. In an online experiment I am looking at how people reward merit when besides the achievement they also receive information about ability in the task. I am going to show preliminary results from the pilot of the experiment.
