Within-Team Competition in the Minimum Effort Coordination Game

Enrique Fatas, Tibor Neugebauer and Javier Perote ()

Experimental from EconWPA

Abstract: We report the results of an experiment on a continuous version of the minimum effort coordination game. The introduction of within-team competition significantly increases effort levels relative to a baseline with no competition and increases coordination relative to a secure treatment where the payoff-dominant equilibrium strategy weakly dominates all other actions. Nonetheless, within-team competition does not prevent subjects to polarize both in the efficient and the inefficient equilibria.
