Current interest in trust games by experimental economists originated in the 1990’s (Berg et al., 1995) following upon earlier studies of simple two-person ultimatum and dictator games (Guth et al., 1982; Kahneman et al., 1986). The finding that decisions in these games collided with the predictions of game theory subsequently ignited a large literature on trust games. This literature has extensively replicated and explored the robustness of the original.
