Abstract

This paper uses subjects recruited from an online employment exchange to study the robustness of the triadic trust design with a different subject pool. In running our experiments we tried to take advantage of the cost reducing features of the micro-employment culture found on Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. We find that first mover trust is robust to the change in subject pool, but second mover reciprocity was not.
