Do you trust your brethren? Eliciting trust attitudes and trust behavior in a Tanzanian congregation

Danielson, Anders LU and Holm, Jerker LU (2007) In Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization 62(2). p.255-271
Abstract
This paper describes one possible method for using subject pools other than undergraduate students. We also report the results from an experiment in which 145 subjects belonging to a specific church in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania were exposed to a Trust Game and a standard set of attitudinal survey questions in order to study trust and trustworthiness, two concepts that are likely to be at the core of the formation of social capital. Issues of method are discussed, and the results are contrasted with those from a Trust Game with Tanzanian undergraduate students as the subject pool. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
