Cross-cultural differences in norm enforcement

Simon Gaechter, Benedikt Herrmann & Christian Thoeni

abstract We argue that the lack of large cross-cultural differences in many games with student subjects from developed countries may be due to the games studied. These games tap primarily basic psychological reactions, like fairness, and reciprocity. Once we look at norm-enforcement, in particular punishment, we find large differences even among culturally rather homogeneous student groups from developed countries
