Bio


Hi there!
My name is Øivind Schøyen; please call me Evan.
I am currently a Visiting Associate Professor at Stanford University in the Department of Economics. I am working on a Theory of Moral Authority together with Professor Avner Greif. Please contact me if you have thoughts of moral authority or if you want to have a coffee and hear more about my research! I am looking for literature both from the behavioral sciences and from economic history.

I am also an Associate Professor of Economics at the School of Business and Economics, UiT The Arctic University of Norway. My research fields are economic history, experimental, behavioral, and, comparative economics. Generally, my research focus on how people with different notions of fairness interact with each other, how we come to think of something as fair, and how states interact with people's notions of fairness.
