---- Acknowledgements -----
Manuscript prepared for Handbook of Labor Economics, volume 4, Orley Ashenfelter and David Card, editors. We thank Michael Kuhn and Loni Spilberg for excellent research assistance. We have done our utmost to identify as many lab experimental papers in labor economics as possible, and to represent the results of these papers accurately. Given the volume of recent research in this area and the deadline we have faced in writing this review, it is inevitable that we have missed some important work. We also sincerely hope that we have not mischaracterized any paper’s conclusions. The authors apologize for these limitations in advance and nevertheless hope that our review provides a helpful guide to the ‘lab labor’ literature to date The views expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
