The design of reward structures in career games. A relative deprivation approach

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

To study performance incentives and reward structures we derive an equation based on the theory of relative deprivation. The equation is applied to obtain several fundamental properties of career games and, in particular, to identify new devices for intervention aimed at encouraging desirable behaviour in such games.
