dc.description.abstractWe use the investment game introduced by Berg, Dickhaut and McCabe (1995) toexplore gender differences in trust and reciprocity. In doing so we replicate and extendthe results first reported by Croson and Buchan (1999). We find that men exhibit greatertrust than women do while women show much higher levels of reciprocity. Trustingbehavior is driven strongly by expectations of reciprocation. We posit that the lowerlevels of trust exhibited by women may be attributed to a higher degree of risk aversion.We derive estimates for the risk aversion parameter for both men and women.en_US
