We find that players are more willing to buy goods in the in-game market after such an trade incident. Hence, the effect predicted by the DRPE model is visible. Yet, contrary to the prediction of DRPE, the magnitude of the prediction error does not have any effect on the post-error trading activity.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2015-03-13T10:02:59Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
