Signaling and Cooperation in Social Dilemmas
Time and Location
Poster Session VII - Board: VII-152
Saturday May 24, 2008, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Signals are brief communications that convey intentions in interdependent relationships. Whether signals are helpful depends on the type of interdependency. In a public goods game (PG), signals decreased cooperation. In a minimal contributing set game (MCS), they did not. The MCS affords a coordinated solution but the PG does not.
