David, Amdur and Ethan, Schmick (2012): Does the direct-response method induce guilt aversion in a trust game?
Download (141Kb) | Preview
We compare the strategy and direct-response methods in a one-shot trust game with hidden action. In our experiment, the decision elicitation method affects neither participants' behavior nor their beliefs about this behavior. We conclude that the direct-response method does not, by itself, induce guilt aversion.
