Economic Incentives and Social Preferences: Substitutes or Complements?

S. Bowles and Sandra Polania-Reyes ()

VOPROSY ECONOMIKI, 2013, vol. 5

Abstract: Part 2 In the second part of the paper concrete forms and examples of the effects of incentives on the social preferences are shown and experiments are described where these effects occur. The authors claim that the negative consequences of the incentives are connected less to the incentives themselves as, rather, with their perceptions among the agents. That is why for a reasonable use of incentives one has to take account of possible effects of such perceptions.
