''A trace of anger is enough: on the enforcement of social norms''
( 2007, Vol. 8 No.1 )
It is well documented that the possibility of punishing free-riders increases contributions in one-shot public good games. I demonstrate theoretically that minimal punishment commitments (perhaps provided by anger) may lead to high contribution levels. Thus, almost selfish players may behave as strong reciprocators.
