Blood donations: the impact of material incentives

Alois Stutzer of the University of Basel talks to Romesh Vaitilingam about his research on the impact of material incentives on people’s willingness to give blood – a field experiment offering free lottery tickets or free cholesterol tests to different groups of current and potential donors. The interview was recorded at the annual congress of the European Economic Association in Milan in August 2008.
