Dear DUSA Members and Friends,

Welcome to the IBSS Online Brown Bag Autumn-Winter Series!

Right in this September, there will be two lunch talks in next week and the week after. The two speakers are both experienced lecturers at IBSS.

The Second Session

Topic: Happy waiting: Long queues for food and endogenous value-creation

Nobody likes to wait in a long queue for a long time, yet is something that we observe on a regular basis. It is not uncommon to see herds of people line up outside popular food outlets: often with a wait time of over an hour. Why are people willing to wait for so long for food? In this light brown bag talk, I float the (untested) idea that while people dislike the long wait, they are willing to because it increases their ultimate satisfaction when they finally receive their product. This is research in the early stages, and any feedback will be more than welcome.


12:10 PM -12:50 PM, Wednesday, September 23, 2020


 The registration will be closed at 10:00 am on September 23rd. Please register this event in advance.
