Friday Lunch Meeting Research, Alexandre Mayol, April 21st 2023

21 April @ 12h30 - 14h00


Alexandre Mayol is Lecturer in economics (BETA – University of Lorraine) and holder of the Natural Resources and Local Economy Chair


Tariff design, incentives and transports: an experimental approach (with Philippe Gagnepain, Sébastien Massoni et Carine Staropoli) 


How do consumers react to tariff design? The theoretical literature in industrial organization aims to design tariffs to address economic concerns. However, empirical results show that consumers may not fully react to complex prices, as they are based on the assumption of perfect rationality. This is particularly relevant in public transportation, as policymakers aim to increase usage and alleviate network congestion through pricing strategies. Through a laboratory experiment, this study aims to analyze the trade-off between time and money under different tariffs. The findings of this study will be crucial in informing public transportation policy and reducing individual car usage.
