I am yet to confirm my exact research topic however I am most interested in looking at individual and group behaviour and how these relate to economic outcomes. As part of my Masters dissertation I plan to conduct an experiment looking at why many people choose to cooperate and behave in ways that do not, at least initially, appear to be in their best interests. More specifically, the role of shame related to knowing that others will observe what actions one has made and how this might interact with the long studied role of communication possibilities in such situations.
