Zum Erklärungsgehalt der verhaltensorientierten Spieltheorie

  • Markus Pasche


    (Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Fakultät)

Zusammenfassung: Es gibt eine wachsende Literatur zur "verhaltensorientierten" bzw. "psychologischen" Spieltheorie. Die meisten dieser Ansätze beziehen verschiedene Vorstellungen von Fairness, Ungleichheitsaversion oder andere intrinsische Motive in die Nutzenfunktion ein, um empirisch beobachtbare Verhaltensmuster erklären zu können. Das Papier diskutiert kritisch den Erklärungsgehalt solcher Theorien. Es werden methodologische Argumente aufgeführt, die Zweifel begründen, ob solche präferenzbasierten Theorien geeignet sind um ökonomisches Verhalten zu verstehen. Als Alternative werden Modelle regel-basierten Verhaltens diskutiert.
