An important open question is also the longevity of gift-exchange. As field experiments are almost always less controlled than laboratory setups, it is not clear yet what precisely is behind the larger variation in outcomes in field settings. It seems clear that much more research is required to filter out the institutional details that enhance or hamper gift-exchange in work relationships in the field. The second part of this survey has been dedicated to the relatively small but important set of experiments aimed at assessing the impact of fiscal policies on the labor market and more general economic performance.

In Hirota et al. 9 Taken together, Anderson et al. (2004), Hirota et al. (2005), and Crockett et al. (2011) present the classic examples of tˆatonnement instability in an entirely new light. The examples of Scarf (1960) and Gale (1963) were contemporaneously viewed as a call to arms for theorists to put additional structure on tˆatonnement to guarantee its global stability, or to put restrictions on preferences so that tˆatonnement-unstable environments could be eliminated. Both of these literatures are typically viewed to have ended in failure for GE theory.

This strongly suggests that shifting taxation from labor to consumption or sales may have beneficial effects on both production and employment. To explore this, Riedl and van Winden (2012) introduce a sales-tax-cum-labor-subsidy (STLS) system in the above described economy and compared it to a pure wage tax system. Two treatments are implemented. In the baseline treatment, in both the home country and the foreign country unemployment benefits are financed with a wage tax.
