We analyze whether the preference for others’ truth telling is absolute or depends on the size of a lie. In a laboratory experiment we compare punishment for different sizes of lies controlling for the resulting economic harm. We find that people are sensitive to the size of a lie and that this behavioral pattern is driven by honest people. People who lie themselves punish softly in any context.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-09-19T07:37:58Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Gurtoviy, Ruslan</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Utikal, Verena</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
