Discriminating between models of ambiguity attitude: a qualitative test (2018)
Journal Article
Cubitt, R., van de Kuilen, G., & Mukerji, S. (in press). Discriminating between models of ambiguity attitude: a qualitative test. 00 Journal not listed,

During recent decades, many new models have emerged in pure and applied economic theory according to which agents’ choices may be sensitive to ambiguity in the uncertainty that faces them. The exchange between Epstein (2010) and Klibanoff et al. (20... Read More

The strength of sensitivity to ambiguity (2018)
Journal Article
Cubitt, R., van de Kuilen, G., & Mukerji, S. (2018). The strength of sensitivity to ambiguity. Theory and Decision, 85(3-4), (275-302). doi:10.1007/s11238-018-9657-9. ISSN 0040-5833

We report an experiment where each subject’s ambiguity sensitivity is measured by an ambiguity premium, a concept analogous to and comparable with a risk premium. In our design, some tasks feature known objective risks and others uncertainty about wh... Read More

Conditional cooperation and betrayal aversion (2017)
Journal Article
Cubitt, R., Gaechter, S., & Quercia, S. (2017). Conditional cooperation and betrayal aversion. Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, 141, doi:10.1016/j.jebo.2017.06.013. ISSN 0167-2681

We investigate whether there is an association between conditional cooperation and betrayal aversion, two phenomena that we conjecture share common psychological characteristics despite having been studied largely separately in the previous literatur... Read More

Time matters less when outcomes differ: uni-modal versus cross-modal comparisons in intertemporal choice (2017)
Journal Article
Cubitt, R. P., McDonald, R., & Read, D. (2018). Time matters less when outcomes differ: uni-modal versus cross-modal comparisons in intertemporal choice. Management Science, 64(2), doi:10.1287/mnsc.2016.2613. ISSN 0025-1909

Uni-modal intertemporal decisions involve comparing options of the same type (e.g. apples now versus apples later), and cross-modal decisions involve comparing options of different types (e.g. a car now versus a vacation later). As we explain, existi... Read More

Stated and revealed inequality aversion in three subject pools (2015)
Journal Article
Beranek, B., Cubitt, R. P., & Gaechter, S. (2015). Stated and revealed inequality aversion in three subject pools. Journal- Economic Science Association, 1(1), doi:10.1007/s40881-015-0007-1. ISSN 2199-6776

This paper reports data from three subject pools (n=717 subjects) using techniques based on those of Loewenstein, et al. (1989) and Blanco, et al. (2011) to obtain parameters, respectively, of stated and revealed inequality aversion. We provide a re... Read More

Common reasoning in games: a Lewisian analysis of common knowledge of rationality (2014)
Journal Article
Cubitt, R. P., & Sugden, R. (2014). Common reasoning in games: a Lewisian analysis of common knowledge of rationality. Economics and Philosophy, 30(3), doi:10.1017/S0266267114000339. ISSN 0266-2671

Abstract: We present a new class of models of players’ reasoning in non-cooperative games, inspired by David Lewis’s account of common knowledge. We argue that the models in this class formalise common knowledge of rationality in a way that is dis... Read More
