Psychology and Experimental Economics A Gap in Abstraction Dan Ariely1 and Michael I. Norton

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

ABSTRACT—Experimental economics and social psychology share an interest in a widening subset of topics, relying on similar lab-based methods to address similar questions about human behavior, yet dialogue between the two fields remains in its infancy. We propose a framework for understanding this disconnect: The different approaches the disciplines take to translating real-world behavior into the laboratory create a ‘‘gap in abstraction,’’ which contributes to crucial differences in philosophy about the roles of deception and incentives in experiments and limits cross-pollination. We review two areas of common interest—altruism and groupbased discrimination—which demonstrate this gap yet also reveal ways in which the two approaches might be seen as complementary rather than contradictory. KEYWORDS—experimental economics; experimentation; deception; incentives
