Transfers and Altruistic Punishments in Solomon's Game experiments

Stefania Ottone ()

POLIS Working Papers from Institute of Public Policy and Public Choice - POLIS

Abstract: Our research is a variant of the third party punishment game that we call Solomon's Game. The main feature of this game is that players can not only punish unfair people but also help those individuals who are the victims of that unfairness. The aim of this experiment is to compare the human tendency to punish unfair behavior to the desire to help victims of that unfairness, in presence of a budget constraint and without the expectation of a long-run pecuniary gain.
