Experimental Design Details
This project aims to understand whether and how perceptions and salience about corporate ESG affect support for corporate bailouts and related policies. We do so by means of an experimental survey where we randomly vary individual perceptions of ESG practices of large corporations through original short animated videos, and where we also vary the order of questions.

The randomization is done by our research partner using a computer.
