His primary areas of investigation include Social psychology, Microeconomics, Positive economics, Altruism and Incentive. He studied Social psychology and Politics that intersect with Friendship, Relevance and Prosocial behavior. He has researched Microeconomics in several fields, including Simple, Involuntary unemployment and Punishment.
His Positive economics research incorporates themes from Reciprocity and Market integration. His work is dedicated to discovering how Altruism, Social group are connected with Ingroups and outgroups, Outgroup and Experimental economics and other disciplines. His Incentive research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Punishment, Competition, Public economics and Collective action.
Ernst Fehr mainly investigates Microeconomics, Social psychology, Incentive, Positive economics and Social preferences. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Reciprocity and Enforcement. His research ties Cognitive psychology and Social psychology together.
His study on Incentive is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Wage. His Positive economics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Social relation and Reciprocity. He frequently studies issues relating to Third-party punishment and Norm.
His primary scientific interests are in Social psychology, Econometrics, Social preferences, Microeconomics and Trustworthiness. His studies deal with areas such as Preference and Action as well as Social psychology. His work on Revealed preference as part of general Econometrics research is frequently linked to Response time and Random utility models, bridging the gap between disciplines.
His work deals with themes such as Political agenda, Sociality, Public economics and Direct democracy, which intersect with Social preferences. His work is connected to Incomplete contracts and Incentive, as a part of Microeconomics. While the research belongs to areas of Enforcement, Ernst Fehr spends his time largely on the problem of Norm, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Welfare, Peer punishment and Positive economics.
His main research concerns Social psychology, Cognitive psychology, Econometrics, Statistical significance and Genome-wide association study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cognition and Slippery slope in addition to Social psychology. His research on Cognitive psychology also deals with topics like
He works mostly in the field of Econometrics, limiting it down to topics relating to Preference and, in certain cases, Value, as a part of the same area of interest. Ernst Fehr combines subjects such as SNP and Genetic association with his study of Genome-wide association study. The concepts of his Value study are interwoven with issues in Incentive, Microeconomics, Neuroeconomics, Resource and Time allocation.
