1. Understanding how shirking decreases team output Eileen sells bottled water from a small stand by the beach. On the last day of summer vacation, many people are on the beach, and Eileen realizes
that she can make a lot more money this day if she hires someone to walk up and down the beach selling water. She ﬁnds a college student named
Clancy and makes him the following offer: They'll each sell water all day and split their earnings (revenue minus the cost of water) equally at the end of the day. Eileen knows that if they both work hard, Clancy will earn \$110 on the beach and Eileen will earn \$240 at her stand, so they will each take 3 1 10+\$240
2 his personal cost (or disutility) of working hard as opposed to shirking at \$30. home half of their total revenue: = \$175 . If Clancy shirks, he'll generate only \$60 in earnings. Eileen does not know that Clancy estimates Once out of Eileen's sight, Clancy faces a dilemma: work hard (put in full effort) or shirk (put in low effort).
