Reward and punishment in social dilemmas by Paul A. M. van Lange( )

14 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the key scientific challenges is the puzzle of human cooperation. Why do people cooperate? Why do people help strangers, even sometimes at a major cost to themselves? Why do people want to punish others who violate norms and undermine collective interests? Reward and punishment is a classic theme in research on social dilemmas. More recently, it has received considerable attention from scientists working in various disciplines such as economics, neuroscience, and psychology. We know now that reward and punishment can promote cooperation in so-called public good dilemmas, where people need to decide how much from their personal resources to contribute to the public good. Clearly, enjoying the contributions of others while not contributing is tempting. Punishment (and reward) are effective in reducing free-riding. Yet the recent explosion of research has also triggered many questions. For example, who can reward and punish most effectively? Is punishment effective in any culture? What are the emotions that accompany reward and punishment? Even if reward and punishment are effective, are they also efficient -- knowing that rewards and punishment are costly to administer? How can sanctioning systems best organized to be reduce free-riding? The chapters in this book, the first in a series on human cooperation, explore the workings of reward and punishment, how they should be organized, and their functions in society, thereby providing a synthesis of the psychology, economics, and neuroscience of human cooperation. --Provided by publisher
Trust in social dilemmas by Paul A. M. van Lange( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the key scientific challenges is the puzzle of human cooperation. Why do people cooperate with one another? What causes individuals to lend a helping hand to a stranger, even if it comes at a major cost to their own well-being? Why do people severely punish those who violate social norms and undermine the collective interest? Edited by Paul A.M. Van Lange, Bettina Rockenbach, and Toshio Yamagishi, Trust in Social Dilemmas carefully considers the role of trust in establishing, promoting, and maintaining overall human cooperation. By exploring the impact of trust and effective cooperation on relationships, organizations, and communities, Trust in Social Dilemmas draws inspiration from the fact that social dilemmas, defined in terms of conflicts between self-interest and the collective interest, are omnipresent in today's society. In capturing the breadth and relevance of trust to social dilemmas and human cooperation more generally, this book is structured in three effective parts for readers: the biology and development of trust; the importance of trust for groups and organizations; and how trust factors across the overall health of today's society. As Van Lange, Rockenbach, Yamagishi, and their team of expert contributors all explore in this compelling new volume, there is little doubt that trust and cooperation are intimately related in most - if not all - of our social dilemmas.--
Personality in economic decision making an interdisciplinary approach by Mareike Kim Hoffmann( )

Inequality aversion, reciprocity and efficiency - experimental studies on other regarding preferences by Balázs Rozsnyói( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis contributes to the research on other regarding preferences by experimental studies. Chapter 1 investigates the feasibility of efficiency gains in a principal-agent relationship by voluntary leadership. Chapter 2 investigates whether negative reciprocity can be documented if the worse off proposer does not create but even eliminates inequality at the responders cost. Chapter 3 is a principal-agent game. It investigates the performance and self-selection of heterogeneous agents in a group or an individual task. Chapter 4 investigates how the method of role uncertainty biases other regarding preferences in experimental games

Voting with feet: community choice in social dilemmas by Özgür Gürerk( )

2 editions published in 2009 in German and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic and social interactions often take place in open communities but the dynamics of the community choice process and its impact on cooperation of its members are yet not well understood. We experimentally investigate community choice in social dilemmas. Participants repeatedly choose between a community with and an alternative without punishment opportunities. Within each community a social dilemma game is played. While the community with punishment grows over time and fully cooperates, the alternative becomes depopulated. We analyze the success of this "voting with feet" mechanism and find that endogenous self-selection is key while slow growth is less decisive. -- Cooperation ; social dilemmas ; community choice ; punishment ; voting with feet

We are not alone : the impact of externalities on public good provision by Christoph Engel( )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Providing public goods is hard, because providers are best off free-riding. Is it even harder if one group's public good is a public bad for another group or, conversely, gives the latter a windfall profit? We experimentally study public goods provision embedded in a social context and find that in the absence of explicit norms externalities have almost no effect. With an endogenously formed provision norm positive as well as negative externalities dampen provision as compared to no externalities. We explain the surprisingly low provision under positive externalities by the providers' increased risk of inequity and stress the importance of institutions sustaining conditional cooperation. -- Public Good ; Externality ; Conditional Cooperation ; Inequity Aversion ; Norms
