Trade policy preference, childhood sporting experience, and informal school curriculum: Examination from the viewpoint of behavioral economics

Eiji Yamamura and Yoshiro Tsutsui

No 17-25, Discussion Papers in Economics and Business from Osaka University, Graduate School of Economics

Abstract: We investigated how childhood education and experiences helped to form noncognitive skills and later, trade policy preferences. We used individual-level data with approximately 10,000 observations collected July 2016. Using the instrumental variables (IV) method, with sporting experience and informal education in the childhood as exogenous IV, we found that (1) sporting experiences and informal education lead people to have positive subjective views about the role of group work, competition, reciprocity, patience, and generalized trust and (2) positive views about the role of group work, competition, reciprocity, patience, and generalized trust leads people to prefer the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement (TPP).
