An experimental investigation of endowment source heterogeneity in two-person public good games

John Spraggon () and Robert Oxoby ()

Economics Letters, 2009, vol. 104, issue 2, 102-105

Abstract: We find an "inverse found money effect" in two-person public good experiments in which individuals earning their endowments contribute more and engage in "altruistic conditional cooperation" when they are matched with those whose endowment is provided by the experimenters.
