Abstract

Our project combines the expertise of nineteen established researchers in three major UK centres for behavioural research to conduct a timely and important programme of world class research. This research has two objectives: to develop and test cross-disciplinary models of human behaviour and behaviour change; and to draw out their implications for the formulation and evaluation of public policy.

At present, different social sciences provide very different accounts of the underpinnings and dynamics of human behaviour. At one end of a spectrum, conventional economic models are populated by highly rational individuals who make consistent and stable judgments among alternative choices. At the other end, many psychological models focus on cognitive mechanisms which may result in choices which are highly contextual and may often appear inconsistent. Both perspectives capture aspects of the truth, but considerable work is needed to bridge successfully between them. So our first objective is to create an integrated science of behaviour, leading to tractable and useful models, built from foundations which reflect well-established cognitive principles.

The second objective is to apply this new synthesis to policy. There has been growing interest in policy tools which respond to the realities of people's perceptions, judgements and choices. For example, the UK government's Behavioural Insight Unit draws on particular results from behavioural science to develop policies aimed at 'nudging' individuals towards 'better' decisions and policy goals. However, in the absence of a body of clearly articulated and properly tested theory which can replace the conventional underpinnings, these interventions risk being ad hoc, normatively ungrounded and may even turn out to be counter-productive. So we shall consider how the alternative models we develop can generate coherent and normatively defensible policy guidance.

In pursuit of our two broad and ambitious objectives, we will establish and operate an international, interdisciplinary, network to develop collaborative research, focussing on four inter-related themes. The first two explore questions of basic science; the second two draw out policy implications of that science.

1 - Understanding individual behaviour and behaviour change: The fundamental objective is to develop new and improved models of individual behaviour; to develop understanding of the extent to which values and preferences that underpin choice can be regarded as stable; alternatively how, or how much, behaviour can be changed or manipulated.

2 - Understanding social and interactive behaviour: We will investigate the real reasoning processes and values which shape peoples' choices in settings where they may (or may need to) take account of other peoples' actions or welfare. We will explore how material incentives, social and cultural factors, and individual differences shape motivations and strategic thinking.

3 - Rethinking the foundations of policy analysis: This theme reconsiders approaches to policy formulation, and the design of policy tools. Our aim is to rethink policy analysis building from richer and more realistic accounts of human agency informed by developments in Themes 1 and 2.

4 - Policy applications: We will trace through the implications of the basic science for policy via three applied projects each of which draws its primary motivation from one of Themes 1 - 3. In relation to Theme 1, we will use existing data sets (in collaboration with UK credit companies) to examine determinants of actual consumer credit behaviour. In relation to Theme 2, will use field experiments to investigate the formation of social values. In relation to Theme 3, we will explore strategies for evaluation of policies affecting health and safety.

Planned Impact

Who will benefit?

Our research will benefit a wide range of academic and non-academic stakeholders. We expect our research network will directly benefit an international, and multidisciplinary, community of academics who engage with its resources, events or outputs. In terms of non-academic users, the research will be of primary interest to all those wishing to predict and influence individual or group/population behaviour. Our Network will provide an international forum connecting policy-makers (e.g., Dept. for Transport; the Dept. for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs; the Home Office; the Health and Safety Executive; and the Dept. of Health, Bank of England; H.M. Treasury; Dept. for Business, Innovation and Skills), commercial research users (e.g., advertising and marketing agencies, consumer finance organisations and regulators), and third sector organisations (particularly in health and well-being, finance, and retailing) with leading-edge academic research in Behavioural Science. There will also be interest from the media and general public in the work, and particularly in the three applied topics around understanding individual credit and debt behaviour, promoting socially beneficial behaviour, and the valuation of life, health and safety.

How will they benefit?

The academic community will benefit via our contributions to basic and applied science and by engaging with the opportunities and resources offered by the network including: opportunities for collaboration; use of network resources; participation in research events. Junior and mid career researchers in particular will benefit from opportunities for training, collaboration with experienced cross disciplinary researchers, engagement with relevant non-academic users and participation in international exchanges with other international centres of excellence in behavioural science.
We aim to benefit relevant non-academic communities by contributing to step-level changes in understandings of the economic and contextual determinants of variability in individual and social behaviour; the relevance of these factors for behaviour change; and how tools of behavioural science research can be relevant for, and adapted to, specific questions of applied interest to organisations in the public, private and third sectors.

Our work will enhance understandings which can contribute to: interventions to help existing institutions (e.g. markets) work more effectively; interventions to provide goods and services which enhance quality of life (and/or to prevent bads which damage quality of life); and the provision of information and/or environments which enable people to make better judgments of what is in their individual and collective best interests.

As one example, our work on preference elicitation will be of interest for many areas of public policy that rely on non-market valuation techniques for the cost-benefit analysis of interventions. As a second example, our work examining behaviour in relation to credit and debt will build on and extend our existing engagement with relevant government departments (e.g. Bank of England; H.M. Treasury; Dept. for Business, Innovation and Skills) plus various charities and private organisations who share an interest in better understanding of issues such as consumers' financial literacy and indebtedness.

Description The activity of the NIBS Network funded by this grant has been highly successful relative to its original, ambitious, objectives. These were to:
• develop and test cross-disciplinary models of human behaviour and examine their implications for public policy formulation;
• build capacity in and raise the profile of high calibre inter-disciplinary behavioural science research in the UK;
• provide a forum for cutting edge cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional collaboration on behavioural science;
• generate world leading research outputs to aid understanding of real human behaviour and to inform policy.

We summarise main achievements as follows:
• We conducted a major research programme generating world-class research outputs across the NIBS Themes
• We achieved outstanding publication success, recording two major books and over 150 journal articles, many in the most highly-rated journals of our disciplines
• In line with our impact strategy, we collaborated with a variety of non-academic organisations and delivered a range of demonstrable non-academic impacts
• NIBS has sponsored high profile conferences and workshops, including events targeted at policymakers, business and the third sector
• We have developed interdisciplinary collaboration
• We have contributed to the training and professional development of a significant group of, very able, early career behavioural scientists
• We have developed international linkages and, through our exchange and events programmes, we have been raising the international profile of UK behavioural science

We can demonstrate scientific and conceptual advances across all four NIBS themes. We illustrate by highlighting just one aspect of work per theme. Theme 1 promotes understanding of individual decision making. We illustrate our contribution via examples of collaborative work by NIBS economists and psychologists. This has broadened the conceptual analysis of risk and time preferences by e.g. offering, for the first time, theoretical analysis of cross-modal time preference and by providing radically new interpretations of established patterns in risk preferences (Stewart et al. 2014; Cubitt et al. 2017, both in Management Science). In relation to Theme 2, concerned with the understanding of strategic interaction, a substantial package of work investigated reasoning processes underpinning human interaction. Illustrative outputs include Isoni et al, American Economic Review, 2014; Hargreaves Heap et al, Econometrica, 2014; and Misyak et al. Psychological Science, 2016. In relation to Theme 3, Sugden led path-breaking work aimed at fundamental reassessment and reconstruction of traditional approaches to welfare economics and policy evaluation in ther light of behavioural findings. Work on this has generated publications in top ranked journals of economics and philosophy (e.g. Bruni and Sugden, Journal of Eocnomic Perspectives, 2013) and a major new book (Sugden 2018). In relation to Theme 4, one of its sub-projects had the objective of probing determinants of social values. We present 2 exhibits of NIBS work on this. One of these (Barr et al, PNAS, 2016) presents compelling evidence of feedback from market outcomes to social preferences (becoming unemployed erodes acknowledgement of earned entitlement); the other is a cross-cultural study (23 countries) linking intrinsic honesty with the extent of 'rule violation' within a society, as captured by established measures (see Gächter and Schulz, Nature, 2016).
Exploitation Route NIBS has been awarded a further ESRC funding which, combined with a substantial institutional support, will underpin its operation to 2021. This allows us to take our work to a new stage, developing particular strengths and successes and capitalising on our interdisciplinary capacity, access to novel data resources, and user networks. For this new stage, we sharpen the focus by concentrating on The Science of Consumer Behaviour and by bringing in new Co-Is with expertise in and experience of the regulation of consumer markets. We will address significant issues in the contemporary public arena concerning the behaviour of consumers and the markets that provide for them.

This work will involve closer collaborations with key non-academic partners established following much investment during 'NIBS1', especially in the UK regulatory sector. As such, we are well placed to make further major contributions to basic and applied social science and to private sector and policy practice in this field. Through this activity we will continue to develop world-class research output and capacity, so helping to consolidate the UK's position as a global centre of excellence in behavioural science and its translation to high-impact application.

Description The NIBS Network provides a forum for cutting edge cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional academic collaboration on behavioural science. Our research has resulted in evidence that will aid predication of behaviour and inform those seeking to influence human behaviour. Members of the Network have been working, and continue to work, with an expanding range of organisations in the public sector, private sector and third sector who seek to influence the way humans behave in multiple ways, from encouraging sign-up to savings and pensions, to better debt-management or healthier eating. We have pursued these connections through several routes, one of which has involved engaging non-academic stakeholders at NIBS events, where special sessions have been led by organisations including Which?, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) and Gallup International. This has led to collaborative research and sharing of ideas; access to data sets that may otherwise have been unavailable; and the opportunity for NIBS members to be active in external events organised by non-academic stakeholders, such as the FCA and HM Revenues and Customs. It has also resulted in NIBS members being invited to act as scientific advisors, with some roles on-going (such as Nick Chater on the Advisory Panel of the Behavioural Insights Team and Gordon Brown on the Advisory Panel of the Fairbanking Foundation), and some of our researchers acting in a senior advisory role, such as John Gathergood testifying to the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee on Consumer Financial Management (December 2014). We have developed numerous projects with public, private and third sector organisations involving various levels of collaboration with partners throughout the research. One of the most successful collaborations has been in the area of household finance which has resulted in NIBS having a direct impact on several of aspects of this important issue, from design of a service to publication of advice/ guidelines for industry professionals. All of our outputs are detailed in Researchfish however we would like to highlight some of the work here. Projects led by John Gathergood, Neil Stewart and Joerg Weber with large UK credit card providers, the UK financial services regulator (FCA) and debt advice organisations, have resulted in joint publications which examine key issues faced by consumers. One of these publications was in the area of payday lending where John was invited by the Chief Economist at the FCA to lead a team on this issue. John designed the research; managed the research team; presented findings to policymakers; and authored the technical annex of the publication together with the research-focused sections of the Consultation Paper, Cost-Benefit Analysis, and the policy defence for the final Policy Statement. John was also nominated by the FCA to testify on the policy decision before the Treasury Select Committee in December 2014. All of this resulted in a change of policy around payday lending and the FCA introduced new rules including a price cap on high-cost, short-term credit. Collaborations developed by NIBS have also allowed access to large data sets that otherwise would not have been available to researchers. This has enabled detailed research to be undertaken with data sets from real situations. One such collaboration with the UK Cards Association resulted in the presentation of research findings to the Credit Card Market Study Team at the FCA during a period of consultation which sought to understand the market and assess whether it was working well in the interest of consumers. The FCA drew on this submission and the specific recommendations for market remedies when they published their policy paper. This is the first step in implementing a package of remedies that could have significant impact addressing the concerns identified, which include how to help consumers find better deals, have more control over their credit limits, encourage those who can, to pay off debts quicker and help those struggling, and to manage their repayments. Our joint working with non-academic partners has also enabled us to share our knowledge of best practice methods to facilitate excellent research. Neil Stewart is currently working with the FCA to design field trials to test consumer interventions in the Structured Products market. These are investment products which deliver returns that are benchmarked against the performance of a market index or the combined performance of individual stocks. Neil has advised on the design and implementation of the research which involved experiments and survey data. Results have shown that that generally consumers over-value the returns of structured deposits, biasing their investment choices. This research has contributed to new regulations on the disclosure and marketing for structured products, which will hopefully provide consumers with clearer information to make better-informed choices about their investments. A further impact of our work in relation to financial decision making concerns a technique developed by Dennie van Dolder and collaborators. This technique, as detailed in the paper, "Measuring Loss Aversion under Ambiguity", introduces a tractable method to measure people's sensitivity to financial losses. This technique has been adopted by the asset management branch of the Belgian Bank KBC which is in the process of implementing it, to measure the loss aversion of their clients. The test version of the App will be released in March 2018, to a selected set of clients. The initial goal is to get a better idea of the risk profile of KBCs customer base and to use this fun gamified app as an educational tool to provide clients with a better understanding of their own risk preferences. The results will not immediately be translated to investment advice, although this would be a logical next step in future. While research related to financial decision making is where we have the largest established cluster of work generating non-academic impact, several other areas of NIBS work also involve significant non-academic collaboration which has either led to, or is expected to lead to, demonstrable impact. One dimension where we expect to generate medium term impact relates to social values and conflict. One aspect of this is informed by the work of Enrique Fatas and collaborators using experimental approaches to study conflict. Their findings have recently been discussed with different government agencies in Colombia including the Ministry of Post Conflict, the Unit of Victims, National Service for Learning (SENA) and the Colombian Reintegration Agency (ACR). This has led to SENA using some of the findings in the design of new vocational training programmes for ex-combatants, and we are helping the ACR to design policy programs for disabled victims. Relatedly, tools for measuring group cohesion developed by NIBS researchers are being adapted in collaboration with Umar Taj from the University of Warwick, for use by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Pakistan for the purpose of assessing the impact of anti-radicalisation strategies. UNDP are keen to develop new tools for assessing the impact of large amounts of resources devoted to anti-radicalisation strategies (such as training programmes and community investments). We are currently piloting the tool with them in a trial (due for completion in Spring 2018) and hope this will lead to further use in the field. Following on from field work of Abigail Barr and collaborators, we expect publication shortly of a paper in relation to developing the capacity of Ugandan primary school management committees and local communities to hold teachers to account. It is early days to report on the impact of this document, but we hope it will not only lead to better accountability but improved learning outcomes for pupils. As a final illustration of the impact of NIBS, we mention here two strands of work which are both at relatively early stages of development but, we believe, have considerable impact potential. The first is drawing on insights from low-cost interventions that can be put in place by manufacturing firms to enhance cooperation, and thereby increase productivity. This work is being led by Emily Wyman and Chris Starmer, and involves collaboration with manufacturing firms in Nottingham. We are currently at the stage of running pilot interventions in several firms. We have also undertaken a portfolio of work related to health and allied with this, is a project by Neil Stewart and Tim Mullett using police and NHS data. Their research analyses alcohol-related incident frequency and causes, to predict demand patterns for alcohol related crimes and A&E admissions. Their findings show a number of effects including no significant increases in incidents on bank holidays and pay days. These trends are considered alongside police rotas where, having more staff on during those times can result in more resources to detect and record incidents, creating a misleading feedback loop. Although this work is still at a relatively early stage, we have presented initial findings at several conferences including the UK Conference of Custody Sergeants. In addition, we have surprising results linking the prevalence of alcohol related admissions to different metrics of deprivation and hope to share these findings with relevant authorities in the future. Another area where we have created impact is through contribution to public debate in the area of behavioural science through prominent media outlets. For example, Abigail Barr, Nick Chater and Bob Sugden were primary contributors to the BBC's popular Radio 4 show 'The Human Zoo' (Nick is actually the lead scientific advisor on psychology for the series). The aim of this programme, which plays to a general audience, is to stimulate interest in the quirks and foibles of human behaviour. As of December 2017, Researchfish records over 300 engagement activities of which 66% were talks, presentations or debates; 7% media interviews, press releases or responses to media enquiries; and 10% in print or online magazines/newsletters. Whilst many of the presentations were given to a predominately academic audience, our aim is to share our research widely. Several pieces of NIBS work received significant media coverage, including: work on payday loans (John Gathergood interviewed on Radio 4 & 5, and Sky News, and citations is almost all UK national newspapers); Abigail Barr's work on moral consequences of unemployment which received extensive UK and European media coverage; Simon Gächter's work with Jonathan Schulz on honesty (cross cultures) published in Nature and covered in outlets worldwide including The Telegraph and The Independent; and finally several papers of Dennie van Dolder have drawn attention in various media prominent outlets including the BBC, The Independent, The Times, The Financial Times, Newsweek, and the Wall Street Journal.

Impact In December 2013, Parliament gave the FCA a duty to introduce a price cap to secure an appropriate degree of protection from excessive charges for borrowers of high-cost short-term credit. John Gathergood was an academic adviser to the Financial Conduct Authority during a consultation July 2014 (CP14/10)2 regarding the proposed price cap on high cost- short term loans. This led to a policy statement and the introduction of a price cap that will come into effect on 2 January 2015.

Impact John's comments at Treasury select committee on the future of payday lending attracted 237 media citations. The introduction of the 'price cap' has had and continues to have widespread effects upon the UK payday lending market. As a result of the cap the cost to consumers of loans issued has fallen by approximately one third, and the number of consumer served by payday lenders has fallen by approximately 16%. These are direct impacts of John's work on policy design with the FCA who nominated him to take questions at the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee.

Title An experiment on individual 'parochial altruism' revealing no connection between individual 'altruism' and individual 'parochialism' 
Description Is parochial altruism an attribute of individual behavior? This is the question we address with an experiment. We examine whether the individual pro-sociality that is revealed in the public goods and trust games when interacting with fellow group members helps predict individual parochialism, as measured by the in-group bias (i.e., the difference in these games in pro-sociality when interacting with own group members as compared with members of another group). We find that it is not. An examination of the Big-5 personality predictors of each behavior reinforces this result: they are different. In short, knowing how pro-social individuals are with respect to fellow group members does not help predict their parochialism.

Title Attention and attribute overlap in preferential choice 
Description Attributes that are common, or overlapping, across alternatives in two-alternative forced preferential choice tasks are often non-diagnostic. In many settings, attending to and evaluating these attributes does not help the decision maker determine which of the available alternatives is the most desirable. For this reason, many existing behavioural theories propose that decision makers ignore common attributes while deliberating. Across six experiments, we find that decision makers do direct their attention selectively and ignore attributes that are not present in or associated with either of the available alternatives. However, they are as likely to attend to common attributes as they are to attend to attributes that are unique to a single alternative. These results suggest the need for novel theories of attention in preferential choice.

Title Calibration with confidence: A principled method for panel assessment 
Description Frequently, a set of objects has to be evaluated by a panel of assessors, but not every object is assessed by every assessor. A problem facing such panels is how to take into account different standards among panel members and varying levels of confidence in their scores. Here, a mathematically based algorithm is developed to calibrate the scores of such assessors, addressing both of these issues. The algorithm is based on the connectivity of the graph of assessors and objects evaluated, incorporating declared confidences as weights on its edges. If the graph is sufficiently well connected, relative standards can be inferred by comparing how assessors rate objects they assess in common, weighted by the levels of confidence of each assessment. By removing these biases, 'true' values are inferred for all the objects. Reliability estimates for the resulting values are obtained. The algorithm is tested in two case studies: one by computer simulation and another based on realistic evaluation data. The process is compared to the simple averaging procedure in widespread use, and to Fisher's additive incomplete block analysis. It is anticipated that the algorithm will prove useful in a wide variety of situations such as evaluation of the quality of research submitted to national assessment exercises; appraisal of grant proposals submitted to funding panels; ranking of job applicants; and judgement of performances on degree courses wherein candidates can choose from lists of options.

Title Combining 'real effort' with induced effort costs: The ball-catching task 
Description We introduce the "ball-catching task", a novel computerized task, which combines a tangible action ("catching balls") with induced material cost of effort. The central feature of the ball-catching task is that it allows researchers to manipulate the cost of effort function as well as the production function, which permits quantitative predictions on effort provision. In an experiment with piece-rate incentives we find that the comparative static and the point predictions on effort provision are remarkably accurate. We also present experimental findings from three classic experiments, namely, team production, gift exchange and tournament, using the task. All of the results are closely in line with the stylized facts from experiments using purely induced values. We conclude that the ball-catching task combines the advantages of real effort tasks with the use of induced values, which is useful for theory-testing purposes as well as for applications.

Title Complicity without connection or communication, experimental data 
Description We use a novel laboratory experiment involving a die rolling task embedded within a coordination game to investigate whether complicity can emerge when decision-making is simultaneous, the potential accomplices are strangers and neither communication nor signaling is possible. Then, by comparing the behavior observed in this original game to that in a variant in which die-roll reporting players are paired with passive players instead of other die-roll reporters, while everything else is held constant, we isolate the effect of having a potential accomplice on the likelihood of an individual acting immorally. We find that complicity can emerge between strangers in the absence of opportunities to communicate or signal and that having a potential accomplice increases the likelihood of an individual acting immorally.

As in previous experiments, we study four- and eight-person groups in high and low marginal per capita return (MPCR) conditions. We find a positive effect of group size in the low MPCR condition, as in previous experiments. However, in the high MPCR condition we observe a negative group size effect. We extend the design to investigate two- and three-person groups in the high MPCR condition, and find that cooperation is highest of all in two-person groups. The findings in the high MPCR condition are consistent with those from n-person prisoner's dilemma and oligopoly experiments that suggest it is more difficult to sustain cooperation in larger groups. The findings from the low MPCR condition suggest that this effect can be overridden. In particular, when cooperation is low other factors, such as considerations of the social benefits of contributing (which increase with group size), may dominate any negative group size effect

Title Decision making in environments with non-independent dimensions, experimental data 
Description This paper tests whether the dimensions involved in preferential choice tasks are evaluated independently from one another. Common decision heuristics satisfy dimensional independence, and multi-strategy models that assume that decision makers use a repertoire of these heuristics predict that they are unable to represent and respond to dimensional dependencies in the decision environment. In contrast, some single-strategy models are able to violate dimensional independence, and subsequently adapt to environments that feature interacting dimensions. Across five experiments, this paper documents systematic violations of the assumption of dimensional independence. This suggests that decision makers are able to modify their behavior to respond to dimensional dependencies in their environment, and in turn those models that are unable to do this do not provide a full account of human strategy selection and behavior change. This paper ends with a discussion of ways in which some existing models can be modified to incorporate violations of dimensional independence.

Title Diagnostic validity of behavioural and psychometric impulsivity measures: An assessment in adolescent and adult populations 
Description This investigation examined how different psychological and behavioural measures can be used to identify impulsive individuals. Five clinical groups split, between adolescents and adults, with varying levels of weight-management issues, were used to validate the impulsivity measures. The measures consisted of two behavioural, an inhibitory control measure (Stop Signal Task) and a Temporal Discounting measure, along with two personality measures, the Temperament and Character Inventory (Cloninger, Przybeck, Svrakic, & Wetzel, 1994) and the adolescent version (The Junior Temperament and Character Inventory) and finally the Barrat Impulsivity Scale (Patton, Stanford, & Barratt, 1995). The most sensitive was the Stop Signal Reaction time, which depicted significant differences in inhibitory control for all but two groups (Adult Lifestyle and Adult Healthy). The psychometric scales were able to sufficiently discriminate between obese and impulsive individuals with healthier participants. The Self-Control and Novelty Seeking subscales on the BIS. The Novelty Seeking subscale of the TCI-R and the JTCI, significantly discriminated between obese and healthy individuals. There was a high degree of association amongst the measures used, identifying that these measures can be used to monitor and measure impulsiveness in obese individuals for use in weight-loss interventions.

Title Disappointment aversion and social comparisons in a real-effort competition 2012-2017 
Description We present an experiment to investigate the source of disappointment aversion in a sequential real-effort competition. Specifically, we study the contribution of social comparison effects to the disappointment aversion previously identified in a two-person real-effort competition (Gill & Prowse, 2012). To do this we compare "social" and "asocial" versions of the Gill and Prowse experiment, where the latter treatment removes the scope for social comparisons. If disappointment aversion simply reflects an asymmetric evaluation of losses and gains we would expect it to survive in our asocial treatment. Alternatively, if losing to or winning against another person affects the evaluation of losses/gains, as we show would be theoretically the case under asymmetric inequality aversion, we would expect treatment differences. We find behavior in social and asocial treatments to be similar, suggesting that social comparisons have little impact in this setting. Unlike in Gill and Prowse we do not find evidence of disappointment aversion.

Title Discretionary sanctions and rewards in the repeated inspection game 
Description We experimentally investigate a repeated "inspection game" where, in the stage game, an employee can either work or shirk and an employer simultaneously chooses to inspect or not inspect. The unique equilibrium of the stage game is in mixed strategies with positive probabilities of shirking/inspecting while combined payoffs are maximized when the employee works and the employer does not inspect. We examine the effects of allowing the employer discretion to sanction or reward the employee after observing stage game payoffs. When employers have limited discretion, and can only apply sanctions and/or rewards following an inspection, we find that both instruments are equally effective in reducing shirking and increasing joint earnings. When employers have discretion to reward and/or sanction independently of whether they inspect, we find that rewards are more effective than sanctions. In treatments where employers can combine sanctions and rewards, employers rely mainly on rewards, and outcomes closely resemble those of treatments where only rewards are possible.

Title Discrimination in the laboratory: A meta-analysis of economics experiments 
Description Economists are increasingly using experiments to study and measure discrimination between groups. In a meta-analysis containing 441 results from 77 studies, we find groups significantly discriminate against each other in roughly a third of cases. Discrimination varies depending upon the type of group identity being studied: it is stronger when identity is artificially induced in the laboratory than when the subject pool is divided by ethnicity or nationality, and higher still when participants are split into socially or geographically distinct groups. In gender discrimination experiments, there is significant favouritism towards the opposite gender. There is evidence for both taste-based and statistical discrimination; tastes drive the general pattern of discrimination against out-groups, but statistical beliefs are found to affect discrimination in specific instances. Relative to all other decision-making contexts, discrimination is much stronger when participants are asked to allocate payoffs between passive in-group and out-group members. Students and non-students appear to discriminate equally. We discuss possible interpretations and implications of our findings.

Title Dispositional free riders do not free ride on punishment: Experimental data 
Description Strong reciprocity explains prosocial cooperation by the presence of individuals who incur costs to help those who helped them ('strong positive reciprocity') and to punish those who wronged them ('strong negative reciprocity'). Theories of social preferences predict that in contrast to 'strong reciprocators', self-regarding people cooperate and punish only if there are sufficient future benefits. Here, we test this prediction in a two-stage design. First, participants are classified according to their disposition towards strong positive reciprocity as either dispositional conditional cooperators (DCC) or dispositional free riders (DFR). Participants then play a one-shot public goods game, either with or without punishment. As expected, DFR cooperate only when punishment is possible, whereas DCC cooperate without punishment. Surprisingly, dispositions towards strong positive reciprocity are unrelated to strong negative reciprocity: punishment by DCC and DFR is practically identical. The 'burden of cooperation' is thus carried by a larger set of individuals than previously assumed.

Title Do consumers take advantage of common pricing standards? An experimental investigation 
Description These data were generated by the experiment reported in the paper 'Do consumers take advantage of common pricing standards? An experimental investigation', by Robert Sugden and Jiwei Zheng, forthcoming in Management Science. The experiment investigates consumers' responses to problems of price comparison when some but not all prices are Gaudeul and Sugden have hypothesized that, when some but not all competing products are priced in a common standard, consumers who are liable to make errors in cross-standard price comparisons use decision rules that discriminate in favor of common-standard offers. Such behavior incentivizes sellers to use common standards. We report an experimental test of this hypothesis, using choice tasks similar to those represented in the Gaudeul-Sugden model. We found that offers priced in common standards were more likely to inspected but less likely to be chosen, and that subjects gained little benefit from common pricing standards that applied to some but not all offers. Most subjects used 'dominance editing' operations which eliminated transparently dominated offers, either as an initial shortlisting device or while offers were being sorted. Because these operations discriminate against common-standard offers, their use incentivizes sellers not to use common standards.

Title Does consultation improve decision-making? 
Description This paper reports an experiment designed to test whether prior consultation within a group affects subsequent individual decision-making in tasks where demonstrability of correct solutions is low. In our experiment, subjects considered two paintings created by two different artists and were asked to guess which artist made each painting. We observed answers given by individuals under two treatments: In one, subjects were allowed the opportunity to consult with other participants before making their private decisions; in the other, there was no such opportunity. Our primary findings are that subjects in the first treatment evaluate the opportunity to consult positively, but they perform significantly worse and earn significantly less.

Title Efficiency, equality, and labelling: An experimental investigation of focal points in explicit bargaining 
Description We investigate Schelling's hypothesis that payoff-irrelevant labels ("cues") can influence the outcomes of bargaining games with communication. In our experimental games, players negotiate over the division of a surplus by claiming valuable objects that have payoff-irrelevant spatial locations. Negotiation occurs in continuous time, constrained by a deadline. In some games, spatial cues are opposed to principles of equality or efficiency. We find a strong tendency for players to agree on efficient and minimally unequal payoff divisions, even if spatial cues suggest otherwise. But if there are two such divisions, cues are often used to select between them, inducing distributional effects

Title Event construal and temporal distance in natural language 
Description Construal level theory proposes that events that are temporally proximate are represented more concretely than events that are temporally distant. We tested this prediction using two large natural language text corpora. In study 1 we examined posts on Twitter that referenced the future, and found that tweets mentioning temporally proximate dates used more concrete words than those mentioning distant dates. In study 2 we obtained all New York Times articles that referenced U.S. presidential elections between 1987 and 2007. We found that the concreteness of the words in these articles increased with the temporal proximity to their corresponding election. Additionally the reduction in concreteness after the election was much greater than the increase in concreteness leading up to the election, though both changes in concreteness were well described by an exponential function. We replicated this finding with New York Times articles referencing US public holidays. Overall, our results provide strong support for the predictions of construal level theory, and additionally illustrate how large natural language datasets can be used to inform psychological theory

Title Experimental data: compliance and the power of authority 2012 
Description The project will explore implications of the basic science for policy via a series of applied projects connecting naturally with the three themes. These will include: the determinants of consumer credit behaviour, the formation of social values, and strategies for evaluation of policies affecting health and safety. The research will integrate theoretical perspectives from multiple disciplines and utilize a wide range of complementary methodologies including: theoretical modeling of individuals, groups and complex systems, conceptual analysis; lab and field experiments and analysis of large data sets. The Network will promote high quality cross-disciplinary research and serve as a policy forum for understanding behaviour and behaviour change. We use an experiment to show that compliance to a cue by an authority is a powerful motivating mechanism. We do this in an experiment where there are direct orders or indirect cues to destroy half of another participant's earnings at a cost to one's own earnings. Depending on the experimental treatment, up to around 60-70% of participants decide to comply with the orders or cues being provided.

Title Eye movements in risky choice, experimental data 
Description We asked participants to make simple risky choices while we recorded their eye movements. We built a complete statistical model of the eye movements and found very little systematic variation in eye movements over the time course of a choice or across the different choices. The only exceptions were finding more (of the same) eye movements when choice options were similar, and an emerging gaze bias in which people looked more at the gamble they ultimately chose. These findings are inconsistent with prospect theory, the priority heuristic, or decision field theory. However, the eye movements made during a choice have a large relationship with the final choice, and this is mostly independent from the contribution of the actual attribute values in the choice options. That is, eye movements tell us not just about the processing of attribute values but also are independently associated with choice. The pattern is simple-people choose the gamble they look at more often, independently of the actual numbers they see-and this pattern is simpler than predicted by decision field theory, decision by sampling, and the parallel constraint satisfaction model.

Title Eye movements in strategic choice, experimental data 
Description In risky and other multiattribute choices, the process of choosing is well described by random walk or drift diffusion models in which evidence is accumulated over time to threshold. In strategic choices, level-k and cognitive hierarchy models have been offered as accounts of the choice process, in which people simulate the choice processes of their opponents or partners. We recorded the eye movements in 2 × 2 symmetric games including dominance-solvable games like prisoner's dilemma and asymmetric coordination games like stag hunt and hawk-dove. The evidence was most consistent with the accumulation of payoff differences over time: we found longer duration choices with more fixations when payoffs differences were more finely balanced, an emerging bias to gaze more at the payoffs for the action ultimately chosen, and that a simple count of transitions between payoffs-whether or not the comparison is strategically informative-was strongly associated with the final choice. The accumulator models do account for these strategic choice process measures, but the level-k and cognitive hierarchy models do not.

Title Heterogeneity and cooperation: The role of capability and valuation on public goods provision 
Description We experimentally investigate the effects of two different sources of heterogeneity - capability and valuation - on the provision of public goods when punishment is possible or not. We find that compared to homogeneous groups, asymmetric valuations for the public good have negative effects on cooperation and its enforcement through informal sanctions. Asymmetric capabilities in providing the public good, in contrast, have a positive and stabilizing effect on voluntary contributions. The main reason for these results is the different externalities contributions have on the other group members' payoffs affecting individuals' willingness to cooperate. We thus provide evidence that it is not the asymmetric nature of groups per se that facilitates or impedes collective action, but that it is rather the nature of asymmetry that determines the degree of cooperation and the level of public good provision

Title How do risk attitudes affect measured confidence? 
Description We examine the relationship between confidence in own absolute performance and risk attitudes using two confidence elicitation procedures: self-reported (non-incentivised) confidence and an incentivised procedure that elicits the certainty equivalent of a bet based on performance. The former procedure reproduces the "hard-easy effect" (underconfidence in easy tasks and overconfidence in hard tasks) found in a large number of studies using non-incentivised self-reports. The latter procedure produces general underconfidence, which is significantly reduced, but not eliminated when we filter out the effects of risk attitudes. Finally, we find that self-reported confidence correlates significantly with features of individual risk attitudes including parameters of individual probability weighting.

Title How to make loss aversion disappear and reverse: Tests of the decision by sampling origin of loss aversion 
Description In 4 experiments, we tested this proposition by manipulating the range of gains and losses that individuals saw during the process of eliciting their loss aversion. We were able to find loss aversion, loss neutrality, and even the reverse of loss aversion. One of the most robust empirical findings in the behavioral sciences is loss aversion-the finding that losses loom larger than gains. We offer a new psychological explanation of the origins of loss aversion in which loss aversion emerges from differences in the distribution of gains and losses people experience.

We elicit norms separately from dictator, recipient, and disinterested third party respondents and find that elicited norms are stable and insensitive to the role of the respondent. The results support the use of this procedure as a method for measuring social norms.

Title Incentives, expertise, and medical decisions: Testing the robustness of natural frequency framing 
Description The natural frequency effect (NF effect)-whereby framing health risks using information presented as natural frequencies (NFs), instead of conditional probabilities (CPs), results in improved diagnostic problem solving-has led to the recommended use of NFs in clinical practice. This experiment tests, via incentivization of a lab-based decision, the hypothesis that the NF effect reflects differential motivation applied to solving problems that differ in complexity. The study examines if incentive effects are moderated by task complexity and expertise and also explores the extent to which NF frames improve diagnostic understanding. Incentives increased correct problem solving and the NF effect was replicated. The NF effect did not vary as a function of incentivization, but was slightly attenuated by task complexity and expertise. There was no evidence that effort mediated the incentive effect. The correct PPV (which is low) was associated with reduced trust in the test's diagnostic accuracy. For those who committed errors, NF frames increased the likelihood of underestimating the PPV, with underestimation associated with greater trust in the test. The NF effect is robust to incentives supporting the use of NF frames in clinical settings. When errors occur, however, NF frames are linked to underestimation.

Title Information feedback and contest structure in rent-seeking games 
Description We investigate the effects of information feedback in rent-seeking games with two different contest structures. In the share contest a contestant receives a share of the rent equal to her share of rent-seeking expenditures, while in the lottery contest a contestant wins the entire rent with probability equal to her share of rent-seeking expenditures. In share contests average expenditures converge to equilibrium levels when subjects only get feedback about own earnings, and additional feedback about rivals' choices and earnings raises average expenditures. In lottery contests information feedback has an opposite, and even stronger, effect: when subjects only get feedback on own earnings we observe high levels of rent dissipation, usually exceeding the value of the rent, and additional feedback about rivals' choices and earnings has a significant moderating influence on expenditures. In a follow-up treatment we make information feedback endogenous by allowing contestants in a lottery contest to make public or private expenditures. Subjects make the vast majority of expenditures privately and overall excess expenditures are similar to the lottery contest with own feedback.

Title Leaders as role models and 'belief managers' in social dilemmas 2012-2015 
Description We investigate the link between leadership, beliefs and pro-social behavior in social dilemmas. This link is interesting because field evidence suggests that people's behavior in domains like charitable giving, tax evasion, corporate culture and corruption is influenced by leaders (CEOs, politicians) and beliefs about others' behavior. Our framework is a repeated experimental public goods game with and without a leader who makes a contribution to the public good before others (the followers). We find that leaders strongly shape their followers' initial beliefs and contributions. In later rounds, followers put more weight on other followers' past behavior than on the leader's current action. This creates a path dependency the leader can hardly correct. We discuss the implications for understanding belief effects in naturally occurring situations.

Title Majoritarian contests with asymmetric battlefields: An experiment 
Description We investigate a version of the classic Colonel Blotto game in which individual battles may have different values. Two players allocate a fixed budget across battlefields and each battlefield is won by the player who allocates the most to that battlefield. The winner of the game is the player who wins the battlefields with highest total value. We focus on the case where there is one large and several small battlefields, such that a player wins if he wins the large and any one small battlefield, or all the small battlefields. We compute the mixed strategy equilibrium for these games and compare this with choices from a laboratory experiment. The equilibrium predicts that the large battlefield receives more than a proportional share of the resources of the players, and that most of the time resources should be spread over more battlefields than are needed to win the game. We find support for the main qualitative features of the equilibrium. In particular, strategies that spread resources widely are played frequently, and the large battlefield receives more than a proportional share in the treatment where the asymmetry between battlefields is stronger.

Title Mathematics self-confidence and the 'prepayment effect' in riskless choices 
Description We extend the analysis of a riskless choice experiment reported recently by Hochman et al. (2014). Participants select from among sets of standard playing cards valued by a simple formula. In some sessions, participants are given a prepayment associated with some of the cards, which need not be the earnings-maximizing ones. Hochman et al. (2014) find that participants choose an earnings-maximizing card less frequently when another card is prepaid. We replicate this result under the original instructions, but not with instructions which explain the payment process more explicitly. Participants who state they do not consider themselves good at mathematics make earnings-maximizing choices much less frequently overall, but those who express self-confidence in mathematics drive the treatment effect. The results suggest that even when comparisons among choices require only simple quantitative reasoning steps, market designers and regulators may need to pay close attention to how the terms of offers are expressed, explained, and implemented.

Title On reminder effects, drop-outs and dominance: Evidence from an online experiment on charitable giving 
Description The data contains one observation for each of the 233 participants of this monetarily incentivized experiment. Participants were randomly recruited using ORSEE (Greiner B. The online recruitment system ORSEE 2.0 - a guide for the organization of experiments in economics. University of Cologne Working Paper Series 2004;10.) and the subject pool of the Centre for Behavioural Social Science (CBESS) at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, United Kingdom. This pool contains mainly university students of various disciplines. Every participant provided written consent before participating in the experiment. Each person participated in one out of six between subject treatments. The experiment used a 3 x 2 full factorial design to analyze the effect of reminders (none, monthly or weekly) and the method of payment (one-off donation or standing order) on voluntary donations towards an international charitable organization. The total data collection lastet for 3 months. This dataset contains one data entry per participant, i.e. 233 rows in total.

Title On the beliefs off the path: Equilibrium refinement due to quantal response and level-k 
Description The extensive form game we study has multiple perfect equilibria, but it has a unique limiting logit equilibrium (QRE) and a unique level-k prediction as k approaches infinity. The convergence paths of QRE and level-k are different, but they converge to the same limit point. We analyze whether subjects adapt beliefs when gaining experience, and if so whether they take the QRE or the level-k learning path. We estimate transitions between level-k and QRE belief rules using Markov-switching rule learning models. The analysis reveals that subjects take the level-k learning path and that they advance gradually, switching from level 1 to 2, from level 2 to equilibrium, and reverting to level 1 after observing opponents deviating from equilibrium. The steady state therefore contains a mixture of behavioral rules: levels 0, 1, 2, and equilibrium with weights of 2.9%, 16.6%, 37.9%, and 42.6%, respectively.

Title On the origin of utility, weighting, and discounting functions: How they get their shapes and how to change their shapes 
Description We present a theoretical account of the origin of the shapes of utility, probability weighting, and temporal discounting functions. In an experimental test of the theory, we systematically change the shape of revealed utility, weighting, and discounting functions by manipulating the distribution of monies, probabilities, and delays in the choices used to elicit them. The data demonstrate that there is no stable mapping between attribute values and their subjective equivalents. Expected and discounted utility theories, and also their descendants such as prospect theory and hyperbolic discounting theory, simply assert stable mappings to describe choice data and offer no account of the instability we find. We explain where the shape of the mapping comes from and, in describing the mechanism by which people choose, explain why the shape depends on the distribution of gains, losses, risks, and delays in the environment.

Title Peer effects and social preferences in voluntary cooperation: A theoretical and experimental analysis 
Description Social preferences and social influence effects ("peer effects") are well documented, but little is known about how peers shape social preferences. Settings where social preferences matter are often situations where peer effects are likely too. In a gift-exchange experiment with independent payoffs between two agents we find causal evidence for peer effects. Efforts are positively correlated but with a kink: agents follow a low-performing but not a high-performing peer. This contradicts major theories of social preferences which predict that efforts are unrelated, or negatively related. Some theories allow for positively-related efforts but cannot explain most observations. Conformism, norm following and social esteem are candidate explanations.

Title Reciprocity and the tragedies of maintaining and providing the commons 
Description Social cooperation often requires collectively beneficial but individually costly restraint to maintain a public good 1,2,3,4, or it needs costly generosity to create one 1,5. Status quo effects 6 predict that maintaining a public good is easier than providing a new one. Here, we show experimentally and with simulations that even under identical incentives, low levels of cooperation (the 'tragedy of the commons'2) are systematically more likely in maintenance than provision. Across three series of experiments, we find that strong and weak positive reciprocity, known to be fundamental tendencies underpinning human cooperation 7,8,9,10, are substantially diminished under maintenance compared with provision. As we show in a fourth experiment, the opposite holds for negative reciprocity ('punishment'). Our findings suggest that incentives to avoid the 'tragedy of the commons' need to contend with dilemma-specific reciprocity.

Title Religion, discrimination and trust across three cultures

Religiosity and religious affiliation may serve as markers for statistical discrimination. Further, affiliation to the same religion may enhance group identity, or affiliation irrespective of creed may lend social identity, and in turn induce taste-based discrimination. Religiosity may also relate to general prejudice. We test these hypotheses across three culturally diverse countries. Participants? willingness to discriminate, beliefs of how trustworthy or trusting others are, as well as actual trust and trustworthiness are measured incentive compatibly. We find that interpersonal similarity in religiosity and affiliation promote trust through beliefs of reciprocity. Religious participants also believe that those belonging to some faith are trustworthier, but invest more trust only in those of the same religion-religiosity amplifies this effect. Across non-religious categories, whereas more religious participants are more willing to discriminate, less religious participants are as likely to display group biases.

Title Standing united or falling divided? High stakes bargaining in a TV game show 
Description We examine high stakes three-person bargaining in a game show where contestants bargain over a large money amount that is split into three unequal shares. We find that individual behavior and outcomes are strongly influenced by equity concerns: those who contributed more to the jackpot claim larger shares, are less likely to make concessions, and take home larger amounts. Contestants who announce that they will not back down do well relative to others, but they do not secure larger absolute amounts and they harm others. There is no evidence of a first-mover advantage and little evidence that demographic characteristics matter.

Title The average laboratory samples a population of 7,300 Amazon Mechanical Turk workers 2012-2017 
Description Using capture-recapture analysis we estimate the effective size of the active Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk) population that a typical laboratory can access to be about 7,300 workers. We also estimate that the time taken for half of the workers to leave the MTurk pool and be replaced is about 7 months. Each laboratory has its own population pool which overlaps, often extensively, with the hundreds of other laboratories using MTurk. Our estimate is based on a sample of 114,460 completed sessions from 33,408 unique participants and 689 sessions across seven laboratories in the US, Europe, and Australia from January 2012 to March 2015.

Title The dynamics of deferred decision, experimental data 
Description Decision makers are often unable to choose between the options that they are offered. In these settings they typically defer their decision, that is, delay the decision to a later point in time or avoid the decision altogether. In this paper, we outline eight behavioral findings regarding the causes and consequences of choice deferral that cognitive theories of decision making should be able to capture. We show that these findings can be accounted for by a deferral-based time limit applied to existing sequential sampling models of preferential choice. Our approach to modeling deferral as a time limit in a sequential sampling model also makes a number of novel predictions regarding the interactions between choice probabilities, deferral probabilities, and decision times, and we confirm these predictions in an experiment. Choice deferral is a key feature of everyday decision making, and our paper illustrates how established theoretical approaches can be used to understand the cognitive underpinnings of this important behavioral phenomenon.

Title Time matters less when outcomes differ: Unimodal vs. cross-modal comparisons in intertemporal choice 
Description Unimodal intertemporal decisions involve comparing options of the same type (e.g., apples now versus apples later), and cross-modal decisions involve comparing options of different types (e.g., a car now versus a vacation later). As we show, existing models of intertemporal choice do not allow time preference to depend on whether the comparisons to be made are unimodal or cross-modal. We test this restriction in an experiment using the delayed compensation method, a new extension of the standard method of eliciting intertemporal preferences that allows for assessment of time preference for nonmonetary and discrete outcomes, as well as for both cross-modal and unimodal comparisons. Participants were much more averse to delay for unimodal than cross-modal decisions. We provide two potential explanations for this effect: one drawing on multiattribute choice, the other drawing on construal-level theory.

He designed and led the analytical work underlying the price cap, including research design, coordination on the delivery team and production of the policy documents. In particular, I implemented a Regression Discontinuity Design based analysis of the effects of payday loans upon consumers and designed a bespoke consumer survey for the FCA.
Collaborator Contribution Collaborative working
Impact John authored the technical annex of the consultation paper; wrote the relevant sections of cost-benefit analysis in the consultation paper; and was nominated by the FCA to take questions on the price cap design at the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee. This led to an introduction of a price cap. The introduction of the 'price cap' has had and continues to have widespread effects upon the UK payday lending market. As a result of the cap the cost to consumers of loans issued has fallen by approximately one third, and the number of consumer served by payday lenders has fallen by approximately 16%. These are direct impacts of John's work on policy design with the FCA.

Over the years we have undertaken various collaborative activities such as: Chris Starmer visited Konstanz from 3 -5 November 2015 (inclusive) and gave a series of talks to their students. At which time the University agreed to facilitate an exchange programme to consist of short exchange visits to Nottingham of Behavioural Masters Students in their second year at Konstanz and also PhD students whose research themes align with NIBS. This took place in 2016 and was well received by students both in Konstanz and Nottingham. The CeDEx research centre at Nottingham continues to promote the dual-MSc programme.
Collaborator Contribution Konstanz funded travel/accommodation for the visit by Chris Starmer in 2015 and facilitated the exchange visit, which NIBS funded in terms of travel and accommodation. We also continue an ongoing relationship with Urs Fischbacher at Konstanz, who regularly attends Nottingham to undertake specialist software training sessions (z-Tree).
Impact This is an ongoing relationship and specific outcomes are listed in the relevant section of the database. However the benefits overall of this partnership revolve around the sharing of knowledge and learning between both universities, and joint work/ research.

Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution Urs Fischbacher visited Nottingham to offer support session in programming experiments with z-Tree. We organised a lecture on Friday, May 3rd, 2-4pm, room A 42, Sir Clive Granger Building on Advanced features of z-Tree. This included strings (free text) in the new version of z-Tree, demonstration of how to define, manipulate and display free text, applications: Exchange of messages or entry of names. Plus questions of general interest such as how to randomize a questionnaire? How to implement a quiz? How can animation be implemented in z-Tree? Students were also able to sign up for individual advice and for those who planned to conduct a more complex experiment, Urs helped to setup the program.
Collaborator Contribution Urs Fischbacher came to Nottingham to give a lecture and one to one support to students on z-tree provided free of charge (estimated as benefit in kind of £500 GBP).
Impact This has improved the skill level of students to undertake experiments using z tree and improved confidence with the software.

Title Skin Conductance Reaction 
Description Human economic decision making happens within the physiological context of the human body. A very simple and relatively effective tool is the measurement of skin conductance reaction (SCR) during economic decision making. A new tool was developed to enable simultaneous recoding of economic decision making and the measurement of SCR. 
Type Of Technology Physical Model/Kit 
Year Produced 2015 
Impact The first impact was a short course we ran in December 2015 to introduce participants to the physiological background of SCRs, to the new device we had developed to measure it during economic lab experiments and information on how to process the recorded data. Now that our students / faculty have been trained in the use of SCR equipment we expect them to use it to run experiments which will lead to a greater understanding of results.

Results and Impact Enrique Fatas (current affiliation Loughborough University & University of Pennsylvania) presented "Democracy fights in darkness" at a CeDEx Seminar (University of Nottingham) on 24 October 2018. This is joint work with Jordi Brandts, Instituto de Análisis Económico & Barcelona Graduate School of Economics; Catherine Eckel, Texas A&M University; and Shaun Hargreaves Heap, King's College London.

Fatas and Hargreaves Heap were in part supported by ESRC Network for Integrated Behavioural Science (Grant reference ES/K002201/1). The study was funded by a grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation (BCS-0905060; Eckel was PI). The experiments were conducted at the Economic Research Laboratory at Texas A&M University (erl.tamu.edu), where Hailey Harwell, Zhengzheng (Zoey) Wang and Wei Zhan provided research assistance.

Abstract: It is an empirical regularity that democratic countries go to war with each other less than pairs of dictatorships (the so called dyadic interaction). The question is whether this relation is causal: do democracies make wars less likely? In Experiment 1, we study potential causal mechanisms: voting accountability and the emergence of norms of peaceful conflict resolution. Democratic or dictatorial conditions are first exogenously imposed on distinct groups of participants. Groups are then paired, and play a Tullock conflict game with each other. Our measure of a group's bellicosity is their investment in this conflict, decided by voters (the dictator) in democratic (non-democratic) regimes. As in a final stage, participants decide how much to contribute to a public good from the resources not invested in conflict. We find no evidence of either causal mechanism linking democracies to peace, as democracies fight other democracies are significantly more bellicose than non-democratic regimes. Similar results are obtained when we repeat the analysis for asymmetric interactions of democratic and non-democratic regimes in Experiment 2 (the monadic interaction. In Experiments 3 and 4, we expand our definition of democratic institutions by adding a deliberation stage, giving full freedom of expression to all participants (in both democratic and non-democratic regimes). While deliberation dramatically reduces bellicosity (and increases contributions to the public good) in democratic regimes, it significantly increases investment in conflict in inclusive dictatorships.

Results and Impact Advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning have the potential to transform decision-making in government, delivering services in a more efficient way and reducing the influence of human error. They may at the same time generate new risks, and so the ethical and legal aspects of their development and use require scrutiny. The Government Office for Science chaired a roundtable discussion, held in partnership with the British Academy, to explore these issues in more detail. Chris Starmer was invited to participate, alongside other leading experts in artificial intelligence, law and ethics working in academia and industry. The purpose of the roundtable was to develop insight into possible implications for government. Date of the roundtable was 14 January 2016 at the British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London .

Results and Impact As part of the Economics Seminar Series at the University of Reading, Dennie van Dolder presented Game Show Economics on 24 October 2016.

Abstract: How do people make decisions when the stakes are high? This question is surprisingly difficult to answer. Field data typically entail a lack of control, which makes it difficult to discriminate between competing hypotheses. Carefully designed laboratory experiments do not suffer from this problem, but research budgets typically do not allow for significant stakes. As a result, scepticism remains to what extent these experimental findings will carry over to situations of greater economic importance. One way to answer this question is to study decisions made by contestants in TV game shows. The unique combination of high-stakes and well-defined decision problems makes game show data complementary to both experimental and conventional field data. As such, game shows offer a unique opportunity to study theoretically interesting behaviour of a diverse subject pool in a high-scrutiny field setting with significant stakes. I will present work using TV game show data to study risk taking, bargaining, and cooperation.

Results and Impact Keith Jensen visited on 26 February 2014 (University of Manchester) to present a talk at our CeDEx seminar series entitled "Games for Kids - The Development of Other-Regarding Preferences"

Abstract: The fact that humans engage in prosocial acts, small and large, with complete strangers, is an evolutionary anomaly. It appears to be the case that our closest living relatives do not exhibit other-regarding preferences. To understand how concern for the welfare of others and a sense of fairness have evolved in humans, it is valuable to see how these emerge developmentally. To address this question, economic experiments such as the mini-ultimatum game with theft, chicken in groups and the moonlighting game have been adapted to be comprehensible to children as young as five-years-of age. Results are still preliminary as studies are still ongoing; the emphasis of this talk will be on how children can be tested and what we can hope to learn from them. Chimpanzees will be thrown into the mix to contrast with children.

This included presentations by a variety of organisations including the Financial Conduct Authority, Keep Britain Tidy, the OECD, Carbon Commentary, the Committee on Climate Change, Which?, the Office of Health Economics the HM Treasury. We considered it to be a very successful event.

Results and Impact This networking meeting enabled the NIBS partners from Warwick, Nottingham and East Anglia to come together to find out about NIBS and the way forward. Many attendees were meeting colleagues for the first time and the newly recruited PhDs and Post Docs were also able to network (and briefly present information about them and their research interests).

This workshop enabled members to come together and to make connections/ new bonds with colleagues based within other disciplines and at other institutions. This is a key aim of the NIBS network. This led on to joint-working on themes of research identified in the NIBS bid. It also increased co-operation between colleagues and has gone on to become the main method of reporting back research to the entire NIBS group.

Results and Impact Our regular September workshop took place 14 to 16 September 2016 at the University of Warwick. It was well attended with representation across all three partner institutions and other key collaborators. We ran parallel sessions due to the demand for time slots. Colleagues were able to feedback on work which NIBS had funded, but also to present details of future research in order to share ideas for comment. The aim of these events is to network, share ideas, develop new collaborations and showcase the work of NIBS.

Results and Impact We organised our usual September Workshop which took place 6-8 September 2017 at the Derby Conference Centre. However this year, there was an emphasis on linking with policymakers, in addition to providing an opportunity for NIBS funded researchers to feedback on their research (especially NIBS-funded research). During the workshop we dedicated a session to Behavioural Science in a Policy Context at which Stefan Hunt (FCA), Adam Land (CMA) and Joe Perkins (Ofgem) discussed some actual and potential implications of behavioural science for regulatory policy. This session was chaired by Amelia Fletcher (UEA/CCP). There was also an opportunity to make ongoing plans for NIBS, which continues in a revised format for 4 years, thanks to ESRC funding.
