No Evidence that Economic Inequality Moderates the Effect of Income on Generosity

A landmark study published in PNAS (Côté S, House J, Willer R, 2015, 112:15838–15843, doi:10.1073/pnas.1511536112) showed that higher income individuals are less generous than poorer individuals only if they reside in a U.S. state with comparatively large economic inequality. This finding might serve to reconcile inconsistent findings on the effect of social class on generosity by highlighting the ...

Inequalities in the Experience of Early Education in England: Access, Peer Groups and Transitions

This paper summarises the output of a Nuffield-funded research project exploring inequalities in three aspects of children’s experience in early education in England.

We find that our treatment causally affects beliefs measured six month after treatment. The effects on beliefs differ by gender and academic background, and we find that stated enrollment intentions ...

Improving Preschool Provision and Encouraging Demand: Heterogeneous Impacts of a Large-Scale Program

This paper experimentally examines the impacts of a largescale government program that increased the supply and quality of community preschools in rural Cambodia.

The newly constructed preschools caused an increase in enrollment rates but the demand-side ...

Coupled Lotteries – A New Method to Analyze Inequality Aversion

We develop and implement a new measure for inequality aversion: two peers are endowed with identical binary lotteries and the only choice they make is whether they want to play out the lotteries independently or with perfect positive correlation (coupling). Coupling has no other e ect than preventing outcome inequality. We implement the method in a survey in rural Thailand as well as a supplemental ...
