The effects of pay regulation when agents are loss averse

Städter, Silvio


This article analyses the effects of a regulatory cap on executive pay when the agent is loss averse. I use a principal-agent model with moral hazard in which a principal and an agent bargain over an incentive contract. I show that even a non-binding cap on the agent's payments can have consequences for the bargained outcome and consequently for the effort the agent exerts.
