Title : Bounded Rationality, Complexity and Optimal Incentives (joint with David Huffman and Collin Raymond)
The abstract is:
This paper provides empirical support for the importance of contract complexity, and heterogeneity in worker bounded rationality, for understanding optimal incentives. Specifically, the paper shows that an important aspect of a workplace incentive scheme – dynamic incentives in the form of the so-called ratchet effect – can be a shrouded attribute that some workers neglect due to complexity. In field experiments within a firm, and in online experiments with real effort tasks, many workers make choices consistent with being unaware of dynamic incentives. Changing the contract to make the dynamic incentives more transparent, or looking at the sub-sample of workers with high cognitive ability, a response to dynamic incentives emerges. The results have several implications: a potential optimal degree of complexity; heterogeneous effects of incentives depending on worker cognitive ability; framing and structure of incentives may matter through the channel of complexity; incentive effects may change over time if learning reduces complexity; firms may want to tailor incentives to the cognitive sophistication of their particular workforce.

Title Automation Potential and Diffusion

Abstract: We introduce a novel methodology to measure the invention and diffusion of labor-replacing technology in the US economy. First, we measure the relevance of US patents introduced from 1920-2018 to work tasks performed by human workers using a natural language processing algorithm. After controlling for the confounding effects of the evolution of language, we obtain a measure that we call the \textit{automation potential} of newly introduced technology: the potential for that technology to eventually replace human workers in the performance of tasks. In a local projections framework, we estimate the impulse response of task hours worked to an automation potential shock and find negative effects, especially at longer horizons, suggesting i) that our measure captures the development of labor-replacing technology, and ii) that such technology diffuses gradually into the economy.
