They ran a number of different treatments. The one to which we refer here is the one in which subjects received monetary incentives, and in which they received no feedback information beyond the payoff received in each round: that is, their ‘Experiment 3 (payoff and no feedback condition)’.

Some authors of the distributional models find evidence favouring their models, but all other authors find evidence mainly favouring state-dependent or reciprocal models. Our own reading of the evidence convinces us to focus on state-dependent preferences (that is, positive and negative reciprocity), while noting that distributional preferences may also be part of the picture. The tr ust game The first step in developing these ideas is to model the underlying social dilemma explicitly. Many variants of the prisoner’s dilemma and public goods games are reasonable choices.

Such considerations can be summarized in a behavioural noise amplitude e 0. Also, Other may imperfectly observe Self’s true vengeance level . Thus assume that Other’s perception of includes an observational error with amplitude a 0. The key task is to compute Self’s (expected) fitness W a e for each value of at the relevant short-run equilibrium, given the observational and behavioural noise. First consider the case a = e = 0, where is perfectly observed and behaviour is noiseless. Recall from the previous section that in this case the short run equilibrium (N, D) with payoff W = 0 prevails for < c, and (T, C) with W = 1 prevails for > c.
