Psychologically, buying, selling and choosing are distinct emotive terms. The first two are laden with strategic connotations – buyers are motivated to buy low and sellers to sell high – whereas choosing appears to be not so laden. To control for effects due only to differences in the KKT wording of the tasks for each of the three groups of subjects, we neutralized our instructions so that each group was presented with a choice task – not buying, selling, and choice tasks. Our instructions, common for all subjects, and the choice sheet for each of the three groups, now referred to with antiseptic evenness as Group 1, Group 2, and Group 3, are shown in an appendix supplied on request.

1. Graph of induced supply and demand and of bid/offer realizations. UPDA experiment 7302, period 12. The first column lists the identification number of each buyer, followed by that buyer’s bid (column 2). The rank order (high to low of bids, low to high of offers) is shown in column 3. The horizontal line below the sixth ranked bid and offer separates the accepted bids and offers above from the rejected bids and offers below the line. 4). Several alternative information feedback and price algorithm procedures for this mechanism have been studied.

This discrepancy is larger (relative to prediction) than observed in the token (induced value) exchange experiments but not nearly as large as reported by KKT. Our exchange procedures narrow the discrepancy reported by KKT but do not eliminate it. We concur with KKT 40 Bargaining and Market Behavior that there does, indeed, appear to be undertrading due to an endowment effect. But, as noted later, our interpretation is different. A comparison of the bid (offer) distribution in the mug exchange experiments with the WTP (WTA) distribution in the choice experiments shows that both the bid and the offer distributions in exchange are below those in the choice experiments: Buyers bid less and sellers offer less in actual exchange than is revealed by the choice procedure.
