Peter H. Huang, Reasons within Passions: Emotions and Intentions in Property Rights Bargaining, 79 Or. L. Rev. 435 (2000), available at https://scholar.law.colorado.edu/faculty-articles/597.
This article discusses the role of emotions (or feelings or affects) in property rights bargaining. Real world people choose bargaining strategies based upon not only rational calculations, but also their gut feelings. This article considers the impact of anger and shame on bargaining over property rights and the Coase theorem. Such emotions may depend on beliefs (expectations or assessments) about whether particular strategic decisions should or will occur. Such beliefs can be viewed as attributions over the intentions of others.
