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 behavioural pattern is driven by honest people. People who lie themselves punish softly in any context.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2015-02-04T10:15:31Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2011</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Eisenkopf, Gerald</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Utikal, Verena</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
