Sticks and carrots: Two incentive mechanisms supporting intra-group cooperation

Thorsten Janus () and Jamus Lim

Economics Letters, 2009, vol. 102, issue 3, 177-180

Abstract: In this note, we introduce two distinct incentive mechanisms that support dynamic intra-group cooperation in the context of prisoner's dilemma payoffs: rewards for cooperating, and punishments for defection, where the rewarding or punishing party may be outside the relationship.
