We test this claim in an experiment, in which an investor can directly transfer money to a trustee or delegate this decision to another investor. Varying the value of the transfers of the investor and the delegate, we find that the trustee’s rewards follow a rather simple pattern. In all situations, both investors are rewarded, but the person who actually decides gets a higher reward. Delegation only pays off for the initial decision maker if the value of the delegate’s transfer is much higher than the value of the investor’s transfer.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2015-02-04T09:05:56Z</dc:date> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Eisenkopf, Gerald</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Fischbacher, Urs</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Fischbacher, Urs</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
