My background is more in statistics and applied math, so I am not familiar with the breadth of decision making models from economics. However, I am working on a project that involves decision making models, especially with reference to racism and/or sexism in hiring or labor market decisions. I was just wondering if there were any existing economics papers that model decision making where some decision-makers in the decision making process subscribe to differing levels of prejudiced beliefs.
Of course I did search google scholar and looked at the microeconomics section of the American Economic Journal. I found a bunch of statistical papers which demonstrate that there is bias in hiring. But I am really looking for something with a model of the decision making process that includes a racism or sexism component.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
