Abstract This paper surveys the mixed experimental results on whether random matching (strangers) produces more cooperative play than fixed matchings (partners). The divergent results in the literature are attributed to the higher variance of behavior in the random matching treatment. Email Contact: andreoni@facstaff.wisc.edu

Abstract: The theme of this brief survey is that behavioral economics, which reunites psychology and economics, will provide a better basis for making realistic assumptions about human decision making and economic interaction. The behavioral economics approach: 1) incorporates nonlinear probability weighting and reference points into an expected utility framework, 2) adds psychologically-based learning processes to the standard equilibrium analysis, and 3) revives Adam Smith's concern with other-regarding preferences as a way of explaining results of recent anomalous laboratory experiments.
