摘要:We investigated the causal effect of increased level of haze proxied by PM2.5 directly on decision making via a natural laboratory experiment. We found an increase in aversion to risk and ambiguity over gains and in risk tolerance over losses together with greater impatience when discounting over a remote comparison. In other-regarding behavior, subjects became less prosocial: giving less, contributing and reciprocating less, and demanding more. We also found a decline in strategic thinking in terms of behavior in a second-price auction and a p-beauty game. Our results underpin several reported findings relating haze and economic outcomes in the literature.

Chew is co-director of NUS' lab for Behavioral x Biological Economics and the Social Sciences which aims to bring together genomics, neuroscience, decision theory, and behavioural and experimental economics to seek a deeper understanding of decision making at the neural and molecular levels. He is among the pioneers in axiomatic non-expected utility models and is a fellow of the Econometric Society which awarded him the Leonard J. Savage thesis prize. Chew has published in well-regarded journals in economics such as Econometrica, Review of Economic Studies, Journal of Economic Theory as well as biology-oriented ones including PNAS, PRSB, Neuron, and Neuroimage.
