Speech is Silver; Silence is Golden

Andersson, Ola LU and Holm, Jerker LU (2013) In Games 4(3). p.497-507
Abstract
This paper experimentally investigates free-riding behavior on communication cost in a coordination game and finds strong indications of such free-riding. Firstly,the subjects wait for others to send a message when communication is costly, which does not happen when communication is costless. Secondly, the proportion of games where no communication or one-way communication takes place is much higher when

communication is costly compared to when it is free.
