摘要|Abstract

We report results from controlled laboratory experiments designed to identify a plausible channel through which alcohol drinking facilitates communication. Experimental subjects play communication games in which sellers who are privately informed about their asset's quality communicate with potential buyers after both parties drink beverages with potentially different levels of alcohol contents. Our three primary findings are as follows. First, sellers under the influence of high alcohol contents lie significantly more than sellers who are not under the influence. Second, when buyers are under the influence of higher alcohol contents, they tend to make higher offers on average. Third, the average earnings of the players as well as the transaction rates are higher when sellers are not under the influence. These findings are qualitatively consistent with a model of communication with lying cost and naive receivers. We also find that our main results do not originate from alternative explanations such as other-regarding preferences, higher-order rationality, and risk-attitudes.
