И снова о пиратах

Помните задачку о пиратах? Народ проводил эксперименты.

Under the assumption that individuals have preferences over only their own wealth, the predicted game theoretic outcome (the subgame perfect Nash equilibrium) is that in which the proposer extends the smallest possible offer and the responder (weakly) accepts any offer greater than (or equal to) zero. Such an outcome is efficient in the sense that no resources are lost in the outcome (i.e. the resources are not lost via a decision to reject the offer). However, research and experimental economics has shown that proposers typically offer between 20% and 50% of the wealth available in the experiment and responders, on average, reject offers below 30% (see Camerer, 2003a). These results suggest that individuals not only value their own wealth, but also the wealth of others and the fairness of an allocation. This has fostered new models of economic behavior incorporating inequity aversion, cooperation, and reciprocity (e.g., Bolton and Ockenfels, 2000; Charness and Rabin, 2002; Fehrand Schmidt, 1999).

Что, собственно, можно было и сразу сказать. :)

Народ провел еще более забавный эксперимент, о котором, собственно, и написана процитированная выше статья. Эксперимент забавен потому, что они хотели проиграть одну и ту же песню AC/DC, но по ошибке проиграли две разных… и им пришлось в срочном порядке переделывать тематику статьи. :)
