two performativity questions
These questions came up during orgtheory training last week. I did not have good answers:
- A lot of performativity research focuses on stock options, less on futures. Why?
- Are there good studies of performativity of theory that aren’t about the economic profession?
My lame answers: 1. Everyone is taught Black-Scholes first, but no reason performativity theory couldn’t be applied in other types of markets, 2. economics is the most influential intellectual group that has a theory of social behavior that is inaccurate (which makes performativity possible) . Post your answers in the comments.
