Experiment on non-governmental norm enforcement (presentation of planned design)

Lecturer: Christiane Reif, Researcher at Centre for European Economic Research, Department of Environmental and Resource Economics, Environmental Management (Germany).


We plan a public good experiment with a non-governmental norm enforcement mechanism. The two stage game is based on the theory by Buchholz et al. (2014). In the first stage subjects decide independently on the contribution to the enforcement mechanism and in the second stage how much they would like to contribute to the public good. The subjects’ payoff depends on their own decision and their co-players decisions in both stages. We will implement the game as a repeated one shot experiment with 10 players in each group. We will compare treatments without mechanism (simple public good game) to treatments with the theory based mechanism. Furthermore, we will vary the strength of the enforcement mechanism.

Suggestions on the planned design are highly welcomed.
