Eva-Maria Steiger classifies the mechanisms triggered by U.S. and European consumer bankruptcy regulations and tests them within a hidden action model. She identifies an influence on consumer effort choice at two dates - prior to distress and post filing -, appraises the capacity of the regulations to implement the efficient choice at both dates, and proposes a regulation to mitigate the identified distortions.
Dr. Eva-Maria Steiger promovierte am interdisziplinären Graduiertenkolleg Recht und Ökonomik der Universität Hamburg. Sie ist wissenschaftliche Assistentin am Walther-Rathenau-Institut für Organisationstheorie der Humboldt Universität zu Berlin.
