Sample text

While this subject is systematically excluded from analysis in those branches of economics where the initial endowment is assumed to be given, it is of crucial relevance whenever the causes for specific endowments play a role. For illustration, I will return to experimental game theory: in the ultimatum game, the player in charge of accepting or rejecting the other player’s offer will not just value her own payoff. Rather, she will compare the two players’ payoffs and relate them to potential claims these players may legitimately have.

In reality, however, small shares are usually rejected; on average acceptable offers comprise at least one-third of the total payoff (Güth 1995). The interpretation of the outcome of such evidence in the standard neoclassical framework remains notoriously unsatisfactory: while even very uneven distributions should render both parties better off in terms of payoffs, revealed preferences imply that this is not the case. It is possible to resolve this apparent contradiction by the application of a utility concept that includes factors other than mere payoff.

In this case, the instrumental character of the discriminative stimulus SD is obvious (see Zimbardo and Gerrig 1996:319–27). The assumption of an instrumental relation between SD and R on the one hand and SR on the other was rejected by Burrhus Frederick Skinner (1953: chs 2 and 5).
