Interests: non-cooperative game theory; experimental economics; other regarding preferences; evolution of market institutions; learning in markets
The last three decades of experimental and empirical research has produced convincing evidence that economic agents do not only care about their narrow self-interest, but are also motivated by other regarding considerations. Based on this evidence, numerous theories of fairness, reciprocity, altruism, spitefulness, etc. have been developed. While some experimental and theoretical papers have investigated the relationship between these different concepts, it is still an open question which of these motivations are particularly important in which economic circumstances. Furthermore, the application of other regarding preferences has been concentrated on labor markets and contract theory. But in other parts of economics the impact of other regarding preferences has been they have been largely ignored. For the Special Issue in Games I invite theoretical as well as experimental contributions on other regarding preferences. Basic research on the relation between the different concepts of other regarding preferences are as welcome as work applying other regarding preferences to all subfields of economics.
