Prof. John Morgan Shows Sellers How to Boost Profits on eBay


Professor John Morgan

eBay sellers can boost profits by setting a low opening bid price and charging higher shipping charges, according to recently published research by Haas Professor John Morgan.


Morgan and co-author Tanjim Hossain, an assistant professor at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, held 80 auctions of new music CDs and Xbox video games to test how consumers respond to different price schemes. In the eBay study, they varied the opening bid price and shipping charges on identical CDs, ranging from Britney Spears to Nirvana, and video games, including Halo and NBA 2K2.


In theory, dividing a price into these two pieces should have little effect on overall demand for a good, the economics professors note. A perfectly informed and fully rational consumer will merely add together the two parts of a price to obtain the total out-of-pocket price for an item and then decide whether to buy and how much to bid based on this total price.


But that’s not what happened in their eBay auctions. Instead, they found that lowering the opening bid price while raising shipping charges attracts earlier and more bidders and ultimately leads to higher revenues compared with doing the reverse. Those findings suggest consumers pay less attention or even completely overlook shipping costs when making bids, the professors conclude.


In addition to applying to auctions, the results could have implications for fixed-price retailing, including electronics and books, where it’s also common marketing practice to divide a price into two pieces. Framing the same price as the total of different attributes may significantly affect consumer behavior, Morgan says.


Their findings were published in an article, “...Plus Shipping and Handling: Revenue (Non) Equivalence in Field Experiments on eBay,” in the latest edition of Advances in Economic Analysis & Policy.


The eBay study is just the latest piece of research on Internet pricing from Morgan, who has been investigating the subject since the late 1990s.


Working with two other professors outside of Haas, Morgan helped build what is probably today’s most comprehensive database of retail prices on the Internet. With that data, updated weekly at www.nash-equilibrium.com, Morgan and his colleagues found that pricing on the Internet varies dramatically, contrary to predictions that the vast wealth of price information online would eat away at profit margins and result in one low price for consumers.


More recently, Morgan compared auctions on eBay and rival Yahoo! with UC Berkeley Department of Agricultural & Resource Economics graduate student Jennifer Brown. After auctioning off identical Morgan Silver Dollars on both sites, they found that eBay auctions averaged almost 60 percent more bidders than Yahoo! and 30 percent higher sales prices on identical items.


Fascinated by eBay as a marketplace and test lab, Morgan also has been an occasional buyer on the site. His latest eBay purchase: a Pittsburgh Steelers Terrible Towel for his son, Aidan, whose favorite color is yellow.

Forty-nine Semi-finalists Move Ahead in the Global Social Venture Competition


Companies with plans to improve access to vaccines and business loans are among the 49 semifinalists selected in the 2006 Global Social Venture Competition (GSVC).


The 113 plans originally submitted came from 12 US states, as well as from Canada, China, France, India, Thailand, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the Philippines, and the United Kingdom. Entrepreneurs put forth ideas that focus on such areas as education, community development, the environment, and healthcare. Five of the semi-finalist teams feature Haas students or alumni as members.


Examples of business plan teams include: EcoLogic, a team from the Indian School of Business working to prevent pollution through an end-to-end waste management solution for computers; Kiva, a Stanford University team with plans for the first-ever online peer-to-peer lending platform for microfinance; and OneWorld Medical Devices, a venture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology whose portable “Vaccine Pac” provides a safe vaccine supply to developing nations and during natural disasters.


Adura Technologies, a team from the Haas School, provides a lighting management solution for commercial buildings that can save businesses over 50% on lighting electricity costs. 


Founded in 1999 by Berkeley MBA students, the GSVC was the first in the nation to reward business plans with quantifiable social, as well as financial, goals. The GSVC is now a global partnership between the Haas School, Columbia Business School, and the London Business School, with support from The Goldman Sachs Foundation and the Omidyar Network. The competition finals will award more than $45,000 in prizes on April 7 at Columbia Business School in New York.

Evening & Weekend Students Build Skills at Annual Academic Retreat


Over 200 second-year Evening & Weekend Berkeley MBA students traveled to the Seascape Resort just south of Santa Cruz in January to hone their management and teamwork skills as part of the annual Mid-Program Academic Retreat (MPAR).
 
For most Evening & Weekend students attending MPAR marks the halfway point of their time in the program. MPAR is designed to both review the skills students learned in core courses as well as to think strategically about how to implement those skills.
 
"The Mid-Program Academic Retreat is one of the highlights of the Evening & Weekend MBA Program," says Jennifer Chizuk, executive director of the program. "Our students have the opportunity to synthesize the skills they have acquired in their core curriculum and to spend three days learning to appreciate the complexities of running a company."

This year, the retreat placed even greater emphasis on the team-building component because students from prior years learned that success also depended on managing their team and learning what team structure was best for effective decision-making, according to Chizuk.

The students spent most of the weekend working in teams on computer-based business simulations for a fictional firm. Each team made decisions for its firm such as whether or not to invest in research; when to increase their sales force; whether or not to move into new markets; and when to manufacture more products.  Based on all the teams' decisions, the program generated results such as stock prices, revenue, and bond ratings. 
 
After four rounds in the simulation, one team emerged as the winner on Sunday evening. The members of the winning team, named Eyebrow, were John Chung, MBA 06; Kristin Huguet, MBA 07; Arthur Menaker, MBA 07; Suresh Kumar Sivaprakasam, MBA 07; Sreenatha Timmareddy, MBA 06; Christopher Vavra, MBA 07; Jeffrey Wong, MBA 07; and Laurie Yan, MBA 07.

Two Berkeley MBA Students Named Venture Capital Fellows


The Lester Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation awarded Alois “Mac” Gerlach and Ryan Jones, both first-year, full-time Berkeley MBA students, the Venture Capital Fellowships for 2006. 


The Lester Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation annually selects exceptional first-year MBA students to receive its Venture Capital Fellowships. The Lester Center then matches the students with three-month summer internships at venture capital firms or their portfolio companies. Applications are judged by a panel of faculty and advisors with venture capital experience named each year by the Lester Center.
 
Gerlach came to the Haas School after serving as an associate director of business development at Thios Pharmaceuticals, a biopharmaceutical research and development startup. He began his career at Arthur D. Little, where he worked as a management consultant. He received his BS in chemistry and cellular/molecular biology from the University of Michigan.

Prior to attending Haas, Jones was an associate at Commonwealth Capital Ventures, a technology-focused venture capital fund. He was also co-chair of NEVN, the East Coast’s largest association of young VCs. Before joining Commonwealth, he was a senior analyst at the Yankee Group, a technology research and consulting firm. He holds an A.B. from Dartmouth College.

Bart McGuire, Professor Emeritus and Noted Berkeley Economist, Dies


Charles Bartlett "Bart" McGuire, an emeritus professor of public policy and former business administration professor at UC Berkeley, died Jan. 23 at age 80 at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Richmond, California. He had been suffering from cancer.


McGuire was known for his work on the first mathematical framework to predict travel and route choices in urban transportation systems.


He was honored last November at the annual meeting of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences on the 50th anniversary of "Studies in the Economics of Transportation." He was the co-author of that monograph, which is now the basis for large-scale computer models used worldwide for transportation planning.


Colleagues described him as a creative, inquisitive and brilliant mathematician and economic theorist who was keenly interested in research with potential practical applications to national defense, the environment, criminal justice and energy.


He made wide-reaching contributions in such fields as economic organization, price theory, decision analysis and regulation. His most recent research concerned the problem of efficient sorting and could be applied to the design of efficient libraries.


McGuire started working for RAND Corporation in 1954, where he was among a group of young defense policy analysts, some of whom later moved to Washington, DC, as advisors to US Defense Secretary Robert McNamara.


He joined the business school in 1961 at the urging of Haas professor Thomas Marschak and then-UC Berkeley professor Roy Radner, an economist and statistician, both of whom had known McGuire since their days at the University of Chicago and later at RAND.


According to Marschak, McGuire was part of an academic vanguard applying algebraic "lattice theory" to the economics of information, a process methodology now fashionable in economics. In 1971 he joined UC Berkeley’s School of Public Policy, where he remained until his retirement in 1992. From 1978-1983, he also served as chair of UC Berkeley's Energy and Resources Group.


No memorial services are planned, at McGuire's request.


The full obituary is available at http://www.berkeley.edu/news/media/releases/2006/02/06_mcguire.shtml.
