Economics and Social Psychology on Public Goods: Experiments and Explorations
Social dilemmas have become the focus of shared interest of economists and social psychologists. This essay surveys experimental studies in both disciplines related to those dilemma situations that somehow fit into the economist's category of public good provision problems. It focuses on their differences in theoretical framing and their use of the experimental method. It also describes and discusses the strategies that have been developing in economics in order to accommodate the experimental findings in new theoretical frameworks. Simultaneously it tries to identify unexplored topics in this field.
