Aaron Nicholas

Aaron is specifically interested in how the ‘rules of the market’ (e.g. competition, prices, profit-seeking) and the ‘rules of the family’ (e.g. altruism, reciprocal exchange, fairness) interact, and is broadly interested in issues of how to measure and define unobservables within the revealed preference paradigm.

Current projects include revealing power and consent in bargaining games, the effect of fairness concerns on market price equilibrium, and the effect of learning chess in primary schools.
