Imagine-self perspective-taking and rational self-interested behavior in a simple experimental normal-form game by Adam Karbowski( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study is to explore the link between imagine-self perspective-taking and rational self-interested behavior in experimental normal-form games. Drawing on the concept of sympathy developed by Adam Smith and further literature on perspective taking in games, we hypothesize that introduction of imagine-self perspective-taking by decision-makers promotes rational self-interested behavior in a simple experimental normal-form game. In our study, we examined behavior of 404 undergraduate students in the two-person game, in which the participant can suffer a monetary loss only if she plays her Nash equilibrium strategy and the opponent plays her dominated strategy. Results suggest that the threat of suffering monetary losses effectively discourages the participants from choosing Nash equilibrium strategy. In game theory terms, the participants may rationally take the possibility of playing dominated strategy by their opponents into account, because the dominated strategy can be played due to not full rationality of the opponents or their specific not self-interested motivation. However, adopting imagine-self perspective by the participants promotes their rational self-interested behavior (indicated by Nash equilibrium choices), perhaps by alleviating their attributions of a susceptibility to errors or a non-self-interested motivation to the opponents. The imagine-self-self-interest link is next postulated and succinctly discussed in the context of relevant psychological and economic literature
Perceived female intelligence as economic bad in partner choice by Adam Karbowski( )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study gender differences in preferences for mate characteristics such as perceived (by the opposite sex) physical attractiveness and intelligence using data from the Columbia speed dating experiment. We have observed that the probability of a woman's positive speed dating decision rises with perceived male physical attractiveness, as well as their intelligence. The probability of a man's positive decision rises with perceived female physical attractiveness. However, the relationship between the probability of a man's positive speed dating decision and perceived female intelligence is non-monotonic. The optimal level of women's perceived intelligence can be found, and it depends on perceived female physical attractiveness. This optimal value rises with perceived female physical attractiveness. The results obtained suggest that virtually, in the women's view, male physical attractiveness can be effectively substituted for intelligence (equally male intelligence can be effectively substituted for physical attractiveness). By contrast, in men's view, for relatively high values of perceived female intelligence, female physical attractiveness cannot be substituted for intelligence. Research findings suggest that for relatively high values of perceived female intelligence this personal trait turns to be an economic bad

Social discounting choice between rewards for other people by Jerzy Osiński( )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the present study was to test the prediction that when two rewards, a smaller but "socially closer" one and a larger but "socially more distant" one, are moved away from the subject by the same social distance, subjective value of the socially more distant reward will increase (i.e. the rate of social discounting will be shallower). The effect was absent when the recipients were moved back 10 places, but emerged when they were moved back 20 places. In addition, the hyperbolic model was found to correctly describe choices between two socially distant rewards. The results confirm similarities between social and temporal discounting
Controversy over the economic justifications for patent protection International Conference on Applied Economics (ICOAE) 2013 by Adam Karbowski( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this paper is to show the necessity of reviving the debate on the economic justifications for patent protection. On the one hand, we see the need for the assessment of the overall welfare consequences of the existing systems of patent protection, and on the other hand, we believe that major changes to the patent law should be considered. Critical review of the discussion on patents shows that the weaknesses of many arguments for patent protection, as well as the resulting adverse effects of the patent laws have been known for a long time. The analysis of the strategic behavior of firms shows that patent protection has often been misused and may negatively affect the total welfare
Conditional and unconditional bidding in takeovers experimental evidence by Adam Karbowski( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this paper is to use laboratory experiments to test the dynamic theory of free riding among the target shareholders during a takeover attempt. We construct our experiments to reflect the dynamics of unconditional bidding suggested by Harrington and Prokop (1993) and the dynamics of conditional bidding analyzed by Prokop (2003). The experimental results show that the observed tendering probabilities are higher than the theoretically predicted values in the case of unconditional bidding. Thus the actual behavior of shareholders is characterized by much less free riding than predicted by the theory of unconditional tender offers. In the case of conditional offers, the theoretical predictions for the tendering probabilities are confirmed by the laboratory behavior of shareholders in the case of multiple bidding. As suggested by the theory, the tendering probabilities are lower under multiple conditional bids than under unconditional offers
Social discounting rate is negatively correlated with fluid intelligence by Jerzy Osiński( )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of the study was to verify a hypothesis, inspired by the handicap principle, of a positive relationship between subjective value of a hypothetical monetary reward shared with others and the level of fluid intelligence. Manipulation involved the amount of reward to be shared (small vs. large amount) and subject's relationship to recipients (related vs. unrelated). As expected, a positive correlation was found between the subjective value of a reward to be shared with others, measured as the area under the curve for the discounting function and Raven Advanced Progressive Matrices scores, but the relationship was only present for rewards shared with relatives. In addition, participants who made altruistic choices in all items scored higher in RPM than those who were not as consistent. The implications of results for the evolutionary interpretation of the relationship between intelligence and altruism are discussed
The relationship between self-control and altruism in the light of discounting literature by Jerzy Osiński( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the basis of literature on delay discounting, potential mechanisms of relations between self-control and altruism are considered. The discussed possibilities are: cause-and-effect relationship (self-control enabling sacrificing immediate benefits caused by selfish behaviour in favor of future benefits associated with altruism, e.g. reciprocation), common mechanism (ability to learn behavioural patterns covering longer time periods), role of intelligence as a factor related both to self-control and altruism, and role of psychological distance (the idea of extended self and construal level theory). Relations between described perspectives are pointed out, and directions for further research are suggested

Delaying rewards has greater effect on altruism when the beneficiary is socially distant by Jerzy Osiński( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the assumption that social distance and time are dimensions of psychological distance important for altruistic choices it was predicted that enhancement of altruism due to delaying rewards when choosing between a reward for oneself and for another person would be more pronounced the greater the social distance between the subject and another person. In order to test this hypothesis, social discounting using hypothetical monetary rewards and manipulation of social distance and reward delay was measured in a group of 161 college students. The results indicate that delaying rewards increasingly enhances preference for altruistic choices as the social distance between subject and beneficiary grows
R&D spillovers and cartelization of industries with differentiated products by Jacek Prokop( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this article is to investigate the impact of research and development (R&D) spillovers on cartelization of industries characterized by differentiated products. For simplicity, we focus on the duopoly market in which firms compete according to the Stackelberg leadership model. Numerical analysis shows that as long as products offered on the market are at least slightly differentiated, it is beneficial for firms to cooperate at the R&D stage, and form a cartel at the final product market. The threat of cartelizing industry is not present only under fully homogenous goods' competition. But, since the vast majority of product markets trade in differentiated goods, tightening cooperation in R&D generates a serious threat of industry cartelization. Thus, significant antitrust issues emerge
Patent hold-up and royalty stacking the case of multiple downstream firms : International Conference on Applied Economics, ICOAE 2015, 2-4 July 2015, Kazan, Russia by Adam Karbowski( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this paper is twofold. First, we study the patent hold-up problem in game-theoretic framework. We show that in subgame perfect equilibrium of the patent hold-up game the innovating manufacturer exerts reduced effort to develop the new product and the patent holder obtains the entire value of product innovation. Second, we show that royalty stacking, which is believed to magnify the patent hold-up, may cause less severe problems than the ones predicted by Lemley and Shapiro [11] when competition on the downstream product market is introduced
Patents and R&D cartels by Jacek Prokop( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this paper is to compare the impact of R&D competition (i) under patent protection and (ii) under no patent protection on enterprise innovation and performance with the impact of R&D cooperation in the form of R&D cartel on enterprise innovation and performance. For simplicity we focus on the case of duopoly. In particular, the impact of R&D competition and R&D cooperation on enterprise research investments, output, market price, company profits, consumer surplus and total social welfare was investigated. The analysis revealed that when competition is Cournot, for any level of research spillovers, the R&D investments under patent protection are smaller than in the case of no patent protection. When firms create a research cartel then, for any level of spillovers, the R&D investments will be higher than those under patent protection with Cournot competition. However, they will be higher than the R&D investments when Cournot competition takes place in the case of no patent protection only for relatively high levels of spillovers. When the level of spillovers is relatively low, the R&D investments in the case of Cournot competition with no patents are higher than in the case of research cartel formed by the duopolists
