  3. 3. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions References M OTIVATION My goals today: Describe some of the main facts that took place in Brazil during the month of June 2013.

  4. 4. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions References M OTIVATION Question 1: why are we here? 1. University: best place for this kind of discussion (open access; free debate of ideas; etc.). 2. Students and Professors at UFES: some of you had an active role in the protests. 3. This Generation: you will be society’s main decision-makers in the future (politicians, businessmen, enterpreneurs, etc.). Matheus Albergaria de Magalh˜ es a The Brazilian Protests of June 2013
  5. 5. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions M OTIVATION Question 2: why do we care? A few reasons: 1. Protests stopped the country in some occasions. 2.

  93. 93. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions References I NTERPRETATION 1968: Biologist Garret Hardin published a paper in Science (Hardin 1968). The paper’s title: “The Tragedy of the Commons”. Common Resources: non-exclusive, but rival. Classic Examples: 1. Commonly owned land in England in the fifteenth century. 2. Animal Species Extinction. Matheus Albergaria de Magalh˜ es a The Brazilian Protests of June 2013

  95. 95. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions References I NTERPRETATION June 2013: I performed a classroom experiment, testing for the Tragedy of the Commons. Experiment’s Goal: students (divided in groups) should try to share a common resource (2 Mentos packages). At the end of the experiment, only one group of students had most Mentos (cooperation lasted for 3 periods, only). Matheus Albergaria de Magalh˜ es a The Brazilian Protests of June 2013

  98. 98. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions I NTERPRETATION Question: what does the “Tragedy of the Commons”tell us? Common resources, when explored in individualistic and predatory ways, can lead to inneficient aggregate outcomes. Alert: we should start considering the common linkages between individual decisions and aggregate outcomes. Matheus Albergaria de Magalh˜ es a The Brazilian Protests of June 2013 References
  99. 99. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions References I NTERPRETATION Question: is there any possible way to avoid the “Tragedy of the Commons”? According to some economists, the answer is YES. Matheus Albergaria de Magalh˜ es a The Brazilian Protests of June 2013
  100. 100. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions I NTERPRETATION Elinor Ostrom (1933-2012) Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, 2009 Matheus Albergaria de Magalh˜ es a The Brazilian Protests of June 2013 References
  101. 101. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions References I NTERPRETATION Prerequisites for Cooperation: 1. Existence of clear rules to identify who is a member of the group. 2. Rules defining permissible and forbidden actions. 3. A system of penalties for violation of the above rules must be clear and understood by all parties. 4. A good system to detect cheating must be in place. 5. Available information to prospective users. Matheus Albergaria de Magalh˜ es a The Brazilian Protests of June 2013
  102. 102. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions References A word of caution by Ostrom and her collaborators: ”The dilemma never fully disappears, even in the best operating systems (...) No amount of monitoring or sanctioning reduces the temptation to zero. Instead of thinking of overcoming or conquering tragedies of the commons, effective governance systems cope better than others. (Dixit and Nalebuff 2008, p.97) Matheus Albergaria de Magalh˜ es a The Brazilian Protests of June 2013
  103. 103. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions References C ONCLUSIONS A Final Question: where do we go from here? 1. Build a multidisciplinary approach focused on understanding common demands and compromises derived from the protests. 2. Identify causes and consequences of corruption (we – society and economists – know very little about it). 3. Demand more transparency from Public Sector’s policies and outcomes (open the ’Black Box’). 4. Use field and laboratory experiments to uncover politician’s and decision-makers’ true preferences and attitudes. Matheus Albergaria de Magalh˜ es a The Brazilian Protests of June 2013
  104. 104. Motivation Evidence Interpretation Conclusions References C ONCLUSIONS Economists: need to start applying economic rationale to conflicting situations more often; see Economics as a broad Social Science. Students, Academics and Policy Makers: start an open and multidisciplinary debate related to the protests; organize a knowledge network related to such themes. Society: modify the way we see our country and ourselves; build a collective identity (Magalh˜ es 2013a,b). a Matheus Albergaria de Magalh˜ es a The Brazilian Protests of June 2013
