Exploring differences in Bargaining Power and its influence on Offer Magnitudes: Variations on the Ultimatum Game
Investigators: Harishankar Moosath, Madhavi Rangaswamy
Research scholar: Adhiraj Choudhury
This is a quantitative study using economic games to understand the effect of shift in bargaining power from the Proposer to the Responder. In the treatments that are being implemented, combinations of three economic games, namely the Ultimatum Game, Punishment Game and Impunity Game, are being used. The variable of primary importance is the offer magnitude. The hypothesis is that greater the shift in bargaining power towards the Responder, greater will be the offer magnitude.
