Both authors are members of NBER. Thanks to seminar participants at the 2005 International Meetings of the ESA for useful suggestions. Excellent suggestions from James Andreoni, Nicholas Bardsley, Gary Becker, Gary Charness, David Cooper, Dan Gilbert, Uri Gneezy, Glenn Harrison, Reid Hastie, John Kagel, Dean Karlan, Dan Levin, Jayson Lusk, Ted McConnell, Kevin Murphy, Andreas Ortmann, Charles Plott, Jesse Shapiro, Andrei Shleifer, Robert Slonim, and Richard Thaler greatly improved the study. Colin Camerer, Ernst Fehr, and Alvin Roth provided detailed comments and made suggestions that have resulted in many improvements, although not as many as they would have wished. Seminar participants at Brigham Young University, University of Chicago, Laval University, McMaster University, Oberlin College, and the University of Nevada-Reno also provided useful feedback on bits and pieces of this research. Financial support came from the National Science Foundation and the Sherman Shapiro Research Fund. This study was part of our original working paper titled ‘What do laboratory experiments tell us about the real world?’ Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com
