SCIENCE Publication: Brain Stimulation Influences Norm Compliance

How does the human brain control compliance with social norms? Are the underlying brain mechanisms mainly concerned with avoiding social punishments, or do they also reflect purely voluntary norm obedience? To what degree does norm compliance depend on knowledge and beliefs about the norm and possible punishments? Can we change and possibly even increase human norm compliance with neuroscientific methods? A new study by Christian Ruff, Giuseppe Ugazio, and Ernst Fehr, which has been published in SCIENCE provides answers to these questions.

2013-05-14: Top position for Zurich in the Tilburg Economics Schools Research Ranking

The CentER for Research in Economics and Business at Tilburg University, the Netherlands, has published the newest version of its worldwide ranking for economics institutes. Based on the research contribution in the top-5 journals from 2008 - 2012, the University of Zurich ranks 5th among the best economics schools in Europe.

The academic economic profession attaches a key role to peer-reviewed published research. Arguably more than in any other discipline, economics has an informal ranking of publication outlets which distinguish between "top five general audience journals" (American Economic Review, Econometrica, Journal of Political Economy, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Review of Economic Studies), top second-tier general audience journal, top-field journals, and other peer-reviewed journals. While the exact within-group ranking is subjective, there is a clear ranking between groups and an equally clear discontinuity between top-5 journals and the remaining reviews. Top-5 journals are a main criterion for appointments and promotions in the best American and European institutions, for instance. Which journals are the five most attractive outlets is undisputed in the profession. For these reasons, the number of publications in top-5 journals is a good measure of excellence in research. It is more precise and less controversial than any measure based on a broader set of journals that would tend to favour the quantity over the quality of research.

Using the database made public by Tilburg University (, we constructed a ranking of the European Universities based on the number of top-5 publications between 2008 and 2012. Here is the result:

1. London School of Economics (UK) 72
2. University College London (UK) 40
3. University of Oxford (UK) 36
4. University of Toulouse/Toulouse School of Econ. (France) 27
5. University of Zurich (CH) 22
6. Pompeu Fabra University (Spain) 21
7. Stockholm University (Sweden) 18
8. Tilburg University (Netherlands) 17
9. University of Cambridge (UK) 17
10.London Business School (UK) 15

The calculations in the Tilburg Ranking are based on the stated main affiliation of the researchers at the time of publication. This means that the success of researchers currently at the University of Zurich may be understated due to the fact that many active researchers only joined the department recently. It is interesting to check whether the top-5 criterion gives a reasonable ranking for US universities. The top 10 institutions are Harvard, M.I.T., Chicago, Stanford, Berkeley, Northwestern, Columbia, Yale, Princeton, and New York University. These economic departments are regarded by most researchers as the ten strongest departments in the US.

The database of the Tilburg Ranking covers publications in 70 leading economics journals since 2004. The ranking provides a standard Top 100 of economics schools, based on a subset of journals in the database, over a 5-year period. Even if you do not focus on the top-5 journals, one can say that the University of Zurich has achieved a top position, ranking 8th among the best economics schools in Europe.

2013-04-09: Ernst Fehr receives 2013 Gottlieb Duttweiler Prize

Ernst Fehr has been awarded for his pioneering research on the role of fairness in markets, organizations, and in individual decisions. The ceremony took place on April 9, 2013 at the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute in Rüschlikon in front of 300 invited guests.
The politically independent Gottlieb Duttweiler Prize is awarded at irregular intervals for outstanding contributions to the community. Previous prize-winners include Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, former UN Secretary General and Nobel Prize winner Kofi A. Annan, and the last president of Czechoslovakia, Václav Havel. Professor Dan Ariely, lecturer in behavioral economics at Duke University, paid tribute to his research colleague. The ceremony marked the high point of the anniversary year of the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute which was founded in 1963.

2013-10-31: Wem gehört die Bildung? (Richard David Precht)

Die Debatte ist eröffnet: Ist Bildung ein Ideal, das nicht angetastet werden darf? Machen Regelwerke wie die Pisa Studie die Schulen zu Lernfabriken, in denen die Kreativität der Kinder unterdrückt wird oder führt eine übertriebene «Kuschel- pädagogik» dazu, dass nicht der richtige Nachwuchs für unsere Gesellschaft ausgebildet wird? Wer ist für die Finanzierung der Bildung verantwortlich? Wer darf sich in die Bildungsdebatte einmischen, wer nicht und sind «Public-Private-Partnerships» überhaupt erwünscht? Über diese und andere kontroverse Fragen des Bildungswesens diskutieren prominente und ausgewiesene Experten.

Nach einem Einführungsvortrag diskutiert Philosoph und Bestsellerautor Richard David Precht mit Urs Rohner, Christa Markwalder, Jürgen Oelkers und Ernst Fehr.

Das Department of Economics und die Müller-Möhl Foundation mit Unterstützung der Excellence Foundation Zurich freuen sich, Sie am Donnerstag, 31. Oktober 2013, in der Aula der Universität Zürich zu begrüssen.

2013-09-26: Public event with Jakob von Uexküll (Right Livelihood Award)

"There is no good unless one does it." A saying by Erich Kästner that sounds simple at first glance, but it should be considered as a complex phenomenon. While human beings want to show moral behavior, they often choose to act selfish, believing at the same time that they are acting moral. Jakob von Uexküll, founder of the Right Livelihood Award, and Ernst Fehr venture an outlook of the future. Together they will discuss the aim of their foundations and how they intend to foster a sustainable development of the society. The discussion will be moderated by Haig Simonian, a former correspondent of Financial Times. You are warmly invited to the public event which takes place on Thursday, September 26 at 6:15 p.m. in the main auditorium (KOL G-201) of the University of Zurich. Please note that the discussion will be held in German. For further information please contact Aileen Zumstein.

2013-11-18: Forum for Economic Dialogue 2013

Amidst the current financial and economic crisis, the debate about the future of “western capitalism” is of central importance. Most people accept that missing, inefficient, or misguided regulation was in large part the cause of the last financial crisis. So the questions that need to be answered are: What role should the state play? What constitutes fair and efficient regulations for the financial markets? Which unofficial rules, norms and individual or group behaviors are important for the smooth functioning of societies and economies?
The Forum for Economic Dialogue 2013 on «Fair and Efficient Rules for Capitalism» takes place on Monday, November 18 from 09:00 a.m. to 07:30 p.m. in Zurich. It offers an ideal platform for academics, business people, public officials, and interested citizens to engage in an exchange of knowledge, latest insights and ideas. The event will start with a keynote lecture by Alan Krueger (Princeton) and will be concluded with the Zurich Lecture of Economics in Society on "A Capitalism for the People”, delivered by Luigi Zingales (Chicago).
The detailed program together with further information on the speakers and the option to register will be available on the UBS Center webpage

2013-04-16: Thinking, Fast and Slow (with Daniel Kahneman)

Prof. Daniel Kahneman, one of the world’s most important thinkers and recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences, gave a public lecture at the University of Zurich on April 16, 2013. The event was organized by the UBS International Center of Economics in Society.
