IZA DP No. 10671: Past, Present and Future Compensation Research: Economist Perspectives

published in: Compensation & Benefits Review, 2017, 48 (1-2), 3-16

At the 2016 Academy of Management Conference, a group of distinguished compensation researchers held a panel discussion on the future of compensation research. Their remarks were compiled into an article published in this issue. Soon after the panel, Charles Fay commissioned a similar discussion by leading economists (Michael Gibbs, Kevin Hallock, Edward Lazear, Kevin J. Murphy & Canice Prendergast) doing compensation research; this article is the result.
