Zusammenfassung: 
Previous studies have shown that other-regarding concerns are weakened under risky situations. Daily experience also suggests that people care more about an identifiable than about an unidentifiable third person. We report on an experiment designed to explore whether rendering the other identifiable - via a speechless video and the revelation of personal information - affects the relationship between other-regarding concerns and risk preferences when there is risk to one´s own and/or the other´s payoff. We find that the acquisition of information about the other has no effect on behavior. Regardless of the treatment, most of the participants are other-regarding with respect to expected payoff but self-oriented with respect to risk allocation.
