Trust, risk and time preferences: evidence from survey data

Giuseppe Albanese (), Guido de Blasio () and Paolo Sestito

International Review of Economics, 2017, vol. 64, issue 4, 367-388

Abstract: Abstract The paper shows that time preferences and risk preferences are key covariates of self-reported trust. They both predict negatively a measure of generalized trust; however, risk aversion is positively correlated with an index of particularized trusting behaviour (which refers to the circle of known people).
