Decomposing the effects of negative framing in linear public goods games

Caleb Cox

Economics Letters, 2015, vol. 126, issue C, 63-65

Abstract: I examine two dimensions of framing in public goods games: Contributing vs. Taking and Gains vs. Losses. I find decreased cooperation under the Taking frame, but not under the Loss frame. This framing effect is stronger for men than women.
