Ulrik Haagen Nielsen: Social Dilemma Behavior

28 April 2014 kl. 14:00

By comparing people’s decisions to how long it take them to make these, it appears that there exists a social norm about acting cooperatively when others do so, too, and that it is intuitive to follow this social norm. Hence, genuinely selfish people must resolve a time-consuming moral dilemma before they free ride on others. It is also found that being generous in general, and not only coopera...
