Trust in triads: An experimental study

Vincent Buskens
Pairs of trustors play finitely repeated Trust Games with the same trustee in a laboratory experiment. We study trustfulness of the trustor and trustworthiness of the trustee. We distinguish between learning and control effects on behavior. Learning effects are related to the trustor’s information on past behavior of the trustee. Control effects are related to the trustor’s opportunities for sanctioning a trustee in future interactions. The design of the experiment, with respect to trustfulness, allows...

An Experiment on the Effects of Embeddedness in Trust Situations

Vincent Buskens
This vignette experiment was designed to study the effects of temporal embeddedness and network embeddedness in trust situations. The experiment uses a setting in which a buyer wants to buy a used car from a car dealer. We distinguish between effects on trust of the past relation and the effects of the expected future relation between the buyer and the dealer. A buyer can learn about the trustworthiness of the dealer from past transactions of...

Testosterone Administration and Strategic Gambling in Poker Play

Geert-Jan Will & Vincent Buskens
Testosterone has been associated with economically egoistic and materialistic behaviors, but -defensibly driven by reputable status seeking- also with economically fair, generous and cooperative behaviors. Problematically, social status and economic resources are inextricably intertwined in humans, thus testosterone’s primal motives are concealed. We critically addressed this issue by performing a placebo-controlled single-dose testosterone administration in young women, who played a game of bluff poker wherein concerns for status and resources collide. We created a computerized...

Consensual punishment does not promote cooperation in the six-person prisoner’s dilemma game with noisy public monitoring

Nynke Van Miltenburg
We study the effects of different punishment institutions on cooperation in a six-person prisoner’s dilemma game in which actors observe others’ cooperation with some noise (i.e. imperfect public monitoring). In the presence of noise, co-operators will sometimes be mistaken for defectors and punished, and defectors will sometimes be mistaken for co-operators and escape punishment. Both types of mistakes are detrimental for cooperation because cooperation is discouraged and defection is encouraged. By means of a laboratory...

Network entrepreneurial personality, network constraint and social learning: An experimental test of Burt’s theory

Charlotte Rutten
These data where gathered to study causal assumptions of Burt’s social network theory. The first assumption that was studied is the assumption that actors with stronger network entrepreneurial personalities more actively pursue a strategic network position of low constraint compared to actors with weaker network entrepreneurial personalities. The second assumption that was studied is whether being in a lower network constraint position leads to more success in advantageous decision making via social learning. What is...

Greek Lesbian Teachers: School, Nation, Family

Angeliki Sifaki
This database is compiled as part of my research project on lesbian teachers in Greece, culminating in my PhD dissertation under the title “Greek Lesbian Teachers: School, Nation, Family”. The research project explores how Greek lesbian teachers construct their subjectivities and negotiate their sexuality in relation to the social contexts in which they are situated. In looking for answer to the main research question, I employed the qualitative method of semi-structured interviews. Since there was...

Reconstruction National Accounts of Holland, 1500-1800

Jan Luiten Van Zanden & Bas Van Leeuwen
The aim of this project is to analyse the economic development of Holland in the early modern period on the basis of a reconstruction of its national accounts. It has been one of the first times the system of national accounts is applied to the study of a pre-industrial economy. The project is confined to the province of Holland, which was demographically and economically the most important part of the Northern Netherlands during this period....

Reconstruction National Accounts: Economic growth in Java 1815-1939

Jan Luiten Van Zanden
The dataset in this datapackage was constructed for the 'Indonesian Economic History' project, which has been a concerted effort of several researchers at different universities and research institutions. The aim of the project was to reconstruct the national accounts of Java (1815-1939) and of Indonesia (1900-2000) and to analyze the long-term evolution of the economy of Indonesia in this period. The reconstructed national accounts form the prime source of information about the economy's development over...

Endogenous Peer Punishment Institutions in Prisoner's Dilemmas: The Role of Noise

Nynke Van Miltenburg
These data were gathered to study six-person Prisoner’s Dilemmas (PDs) in which subjects endogenously decide whether to implement a peer punishment institution in their group and whether the punishment institution, if implemented, implies more or less severe punishments. We consider PDs with perfect information on other subjects’ previous behavior, and PDs in which subjects observe each other’s behavior with noise. In the experiment, subjects participated in series of six-person PD games with endogenous punishment institutions....

Testosterone, Social Environment and Trust

Vincent Buskens, Nynke Van Miltenburg & Estrella Montoya
In this experiment we systematically vary the characteristics of the social environment and show that, depending on prenatal sex hormone priming, testosterone administration in women moderates the effect of the social environment on trust. We use the economic trust game and compare one-shot games modelling trust problems in relations between strangers with repeated games modelling trust problems in ongoing relations between partners. The trust game not only models important features of social and economic interactions,...

Individual training and employees’ cooperative behavior: evidence from a contextualized laboratory experiment.

Nikki Van Gerwen
Employers are constantly seeking to improve employee performance by means of investing in employee training. The results of training are to a large extent dependent on employees’ willingness to behave productively in a cooperative manner. Yet, systematic evidence investigating the causal relation between training and employees’ cooperative behavior is rare. Here we present results from a contextualized laboratory experiment in which subjects, who differ in terms of training participation, were asked to contribute resources to...

Partner-specific Behavior in Social Networks: Coordination among Actors with Heterogeneous Preferences

Nikki Van Gerwen
These data were gathered to study coordination games in which individuals have conflicting preferences. We propose the actors’ ability to vary behavior when interacting with different partners (partner-specific behavior) as a mechanism facilitating coordination in situations where actors have different preferences. We assume that actors are connected through a network and play coordination games with their neighbors in the network. Actors may or may not behave partner-specifically and actors’ preferences for outcomes in the game...

Implementing punishment and reward in the public goods game: the effect of individual and collective decision rules
