Delineating deception in experimental economics: Researchers' and subjects' views

No 2013-11, Working Papers from Faculty of Economic Sciences, University of Warsaw

Abstract: I report the results of a large survey of experimental subjects and researchers concerning the use of deception. I conclude that members of these two groups largely agree on the extent to which various specific techniques are deceptive. I identify the main dimensions that determine this judgment. I also find that the attitude towards deception among subjects tends to be more favorable than among researchers, although even the latter do not readily conform with the common view that deception is taboo in experimental economics.
