This thesis contains three essays that study how people behave in a social context. The first two essays are on cooperation and networks. Chapter 2 investigates a mechanism to facilitate public good provision in networks. It relies on the idea that people compete for attractive network positions (or status) and that they do so by creating public goods. Chapter 3 studies how power asymmetries affect cooperation in groups. Two types of power are studied: power from being central in a network and power from having the authority to distribute the group surplus. The third essay, chapter 4, studies a possible explanation why people experience social emotions such as anger towards others.
