Camerer, Colin F; Fehr, Ernst (2002). Measuring social norms and preferences using experimental games: A guide for social scientists. Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 97, University of Zurich.

Abstract

Experimental games turned out to be remarkably productive tools for examining the nature of social preferences and social norms. This paper describes the methods and tools of experimental game theory and provides a selection of games that have been useful. We also discuss the role of evolutionary explanations of and social preference theory in organizing the data in a coherent way.
