Testing the impact of frustration and anger when responsibility is low

2018 (English)In: Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, ISSN 0167-2681, E-ISSN 1879-1751, Vol. 145, p. 435-448Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Anger is a powerful emotion and it is important to understand its role in human interaction. Angry individuals may become hostile in their dealings with others, and this has strategic consequences. Battigalli, Dufwenberg, and Smith (2015; BDS) develop a formal framework where frustration and anger affect interaction and shape economic outcomes. This paper presents an experiment designed to test predictions based on versions of the theory that involve no or low responsibility of the punished person. In this specific context, I find only limited, support for the theory: While unfulfilled expectations about material pay-offs generate negative emotions in subjects (which is in line with BDS conceptualization of frustration), these emotions do not affect subjects behavior in the experiment.
