Les sportifs sont-ils (vraiment) différents ?. Une approche par l'économie expérimentale
Using a simple experimental approach on 126 French students, we test the assumption that students participating in sports activities have specific economic behavior. We find that sports practice intensifies the usual gender differences: athletic participation seems to render boys still more “competitive” and less inequality averse whereas it has the opposite effect on girls. These experimental data may be put in parallel with the “athlete premium” identified in US labor markets. Classification JEL : C72, C90, D10, L83.
