Abstract: This dissertation consists of four self-contained chapters in Behavioral and Experimental Economics. The chapters address distinct research questions about individual behavior in various domains, with a particular focus on prosocial behavior and the role of information in economic decision-making. Chapter 1 studies the demand for, and avoidance of, moral information and its impact on behavior in the context of meat consumption. Chapters 2 and 3 focus on charitable giving. In particular, Chapter 2 explores how asking individuals to fund charitable goods (instead of simply providing money) influences donations, while Chapter 3 complements this line of research by analyzing the effectiveness of subsidies in such a decision environment. Chapter 4 investigates whether beliefs about lobbying in the context of climate protection affect individuals' pro-environmental behavior.
