Stodder, James
Journal of Economic Education, v29 n2 p127-38 Spr 1998
Maintains that many traditional economics classroom experiments unfairly label, deride, or denigrate altruistic behavior and moral motivation. Describes several in-class experiments, the prisoners' dilemma, dictator games, and double auction experiments and discusses their inherent bias against moral considerations. Examines the ethical problems involving grade incentives for experiments. (MJP)
