Unraveling Public Good Games

Pablo Brañas-Garza and Maria Paz Espinosa ()

No 08/01, ThE Papers from Department of Economic Theory and Economic History of the University of Granada.

Abstract: This paper provides experimental evidence on how players predict end game effects in a linear public good game. Our regression analysis yields a measure of the relative importance of priors and signals on subjects’ beliefs and let us conclude that, first, the weight of the signal is relatively unimportant, while priors have a large weight and, second, priors are the same for all periods. Hence, subjects do not expect end game effects and they do very little updating of beliefs.
