Abstract:

In recent years, experimental economists have discovered that people exhibit different patterns of cooperative behavior. This paper presents findings from a face-to-face experiment that analyzed whether individuals who possess a willingness to cooperate can credibly signal it and whether it is recognizable by the partner. Results revealed that both capabilities, signaling and recognizing, depend upon the individual’s propensity to cooperate.
