Rosendahl Huber, Laura; Sloof, Randolph; Van Praag, Mirjam (2017). The Effect of Incentives on Sustainable Behavior: Evidence From a Field Experiment, Labour Economics, 45, 92-106. DOI

  • This study investigates how children respond to different treatments aimed to foster sustainable behavior in a productive (firm like) setting. We conduct a field experiment using teams of children (aged 11 or 12) that are participating in an entrepreneurship education program in the last grade of primary school in the Netherlands. Schools participating in this program are randomly assigned to one of three treatments: the first is purely financially oriented, the second promotes sustainable behavior and the third also induces sustainability by (monetary) incentives. Comparing the first two groups we find that solely promoting sustainability does not lead to a change in sustainable behavior. However, once the monetary reward is linked to sustainable outcome measures, we find a significant positive effect on sustainable behavior. In our specific setting, the choice to behave more sustainable comes at the cost of weaker financial performance of the team.

Rosendahl Huber, Laura; Sloof, Randolph; Van Praag, Mirjam (2014). The Effect of Early Entrepreneurship Education: Evidence from a Field Experiment, European Economic Review, 72, 76-97. DOI

  • The aim of this study is to analyze the effectiveness of early entrepreneurship education. To this end, we conduct a randomized field experiment to evaluate a leading entrepreneurship education program that is taught worldwide in the final grade of primary school. We focus on pupils׳ development of entrepreneurship knowledge and a set of non-cognitive skills relevant for entrepreneurial activity. The results indicate that knowledge is unaffected by the program. However, the program has a robust positive effect on non-cognitive entrepreneurial skills. This is surprising since previous evaluations found zero or negative effects. Because these earlier studies all pertain to entrepreneurship education for adolescents, our result tentatively suggests that non-cognitive entrepreneurial skills are best developed at an early age. As the entrepreneurship program has various features besides its entrepreneurship content, we must leave it to future research to determine which specific element has the greatest impact on the development of non-cognitive entrepreneurial skills.

    Rosendahl Huber, Laura; Sloof, Randolf; Van Praag, Mirjam (2014). Jacks-of-all-trades? The effect of balanced skills on team performance, IZA Discussion Paper, No. 8237.

    • Previous empirical studies have shown that solo entrepreneurs benefit from having balanced skills: Jacks-of-All-Trades (JATs) are better entrepreneurs than specialists are. Nowadays however, the majority of entrepreneurs start up and run ventures together in teams. In this paper we test whether the effect of more balanced skills is also positive in a team of entrepreneurs. We also explore whether (a lack of) individual balanced skills can be substituted by combining the skills of various specialists within one team. Our field experiment studies teams of children participating in an entrepreneurship education program. Based on pupils’ precisely measured level of verbal and mathematical ability, we exogenously compose 179 teams separated into four different types: JAT teams, math- specialist teams, verbal-specialist teams and mixed specialist teams. Our results show that balanced skills are beneficial to team performance, and that it is hard to substitute individual balanced skills by combining different specialists within one team.
