Are people conditionally cooperative? Evidence from a public goods experiment


Fischbacher, Urs; Gächter, Simon; Fehr, Ernst (2001). Are people conditionally cooperative? Evidence from a public goods experiment. Economics Letters, 71(3):397-404.

Abstract

We study the importance of conditional cooperation in a one-shot public goods game by using a variant of the strategy-method. We find that a third of the subjects can be classified as free riders, whereas 50% are conditional cooperators.
