Gender Differences in Economic Experiments

Selim Ergun (), Teresa M. García-Muñoz () and M. Fernanda Rivas ()

No 10/14, ThE Papers from Department of Economic Theory and Economic History of the University of Granada.

Abstract: This paper reviews the experimental economics literature on gender differences concerning four subjects: risk aversion, trust, deception and leadership. The vast majority of the articles we have revised document gender differences in behavior; differences which could be explained by sex-role stereotypes and/or hormonal differences
