Over the last decade, there has been a growing interest in the association between 2D:4D, a putative marker for prenatal testosterone exposure, and economic preferences. The results are mixed, and part of the inconclusiveness may come from the typically limited sample sizes as well as the many “researcher degrees of freedom” in the analysis. To firmly test if 2D:4D is associated ...
