    Abstract

    This dissertation consists of five studies on rent-seeking and contributes to the behavioral and experimental analyses of this phenomenon. Using experimental methods and insights from behavioral economics, I test theoretic predictions of standard economics for rent-seeking settings and complement standard models by behavioral extensions.
