Johanna Möllerström presenting a new study av IFN in Stockholm, Sweden.

On Monday, the first academic brown bag seminar of the fall was held at IFN (research at an early stage).  Johanna Möllerström, George Mason University in Washington DC and affiliate of IFN,  presented the study "A Meritocratic Origin of Egalitarian Behavior." In experiments, the researchers have studied how people (in the US and Norway) believe that it is fair to redistribute income - depending on who is responsible for the best performance. And what does it mean when you do not know for sure whose performance is the best?
