Mechanism Design for Social Good Working Groups

Online Labor Markets


The rise of online labor markets presents a novel set of opportunities to increase efficiency and reduce frictions. At the same time, these advances come with a number of challenges, many of which are not yet fully understood. The MD4SG Online Labor Markets working group consists of researchers from a variety of backgrounds who are interested in recognizing and tackling these challenges. We draw upon our perspectives from disciplines such as computer science, economics, game theory, and operations research to address social issues related to and perpetuated by online labor markets.
