|Title:||Do people care about context? Framing effects in dictator games |
Rand, David G.
|Issue Date:||2011 |
|Series/Report no.:||SSE/EFI Working Paper Series in Economics and Finance 738|
|Abstract:||Many previous experiments document that behavior in multi-person settings responds to the name of the game and the labeling of strategies. Usually these studies cannot tell whether frames affect preferences or beliefs. In this Dictator game study, we investigate whether social framing effects are also present when only one of the subjects makes a decision, in which case the frame may only affect preferences. We find that behavior is insensitive to social framing.|
