MPRC Seminar: Micro-Ordeals & Preventative Health Products: Evidence on Short-Term Take-Up and Habit Formation

Vivian Hoffmann, Assistant Professor, Department of Agriculture & Resource Economic, University of Maryland About the Talk: Public subsidy of preventative health technologies is often justified based on the positive externalities generated by interrupting disease transmission. In the case of technologies that require active use to be effective, fully subsidizing inputs may not be sufficient to generate the desired externality. On the other hand, charging non-zero prices may screen out many of those who would use a product. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 25, 2013
