Bereket Kebede presents paper at the Economic Science Association (ESA) European Meeting

DEV's Bereket Kebede presented a paper at the Economic Science Association (ESA) European Meeting held between the 3rd and 6th September 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic.

Bereket presented the paper which he co-authored with Nicole Gross-Camp, Adrian Martin and Shawn McGuire - all also from DEV - and Joseph Munyarukaza.

The paper is entitled “Public goods, inequality aversion, personality and social interactions: An experimental study” and uses data from Rwanda collected as part of a European Union funded project.  Experimental games played with rural inhabitants of Rwanda are used to understand how inequality aversion affects cooperation and how this effect is mediated by personality.
