Communication and Guilt in a Prisoner's Dilemma

Topi Miettinen () and Sigrid Suetens

Journal of Conflict Resolution, 2008, vol. 52, issue 6, 945-960

Abstract: In this article, the authors measure experienced guilt in a prisoner's-dilemma experiment with preplay communication. The authors find that feelings of guilt only arise in the case of unilateral defection and that they are stronger when players have mutually agreed to cooperate. The authors also find that fining unilateral defection reduces feelings of guilt.
