Abstract

Este documento investiga hasta que punto las personas confían, reciprocan, cooperan y comparten riesgos. El estudio se llevó a cabo en seis ciudades de América Latina aplicando una serie de experimentos de campo que incluían el juego de confianza, el mecanismo de contribuciones voluntarias y tres juegos de riesgo compartido. Los resultados sugieren que: (i) en promedio, la propensión de los latinoamericanos a confiar y a cooperar es notablemente similar a la de otras regiones del mundo; (ii) la expectativa sobre el comportamiento de los demás es el principal motivador de confianza, reciprocidad y cooperación, y (iii) los comportamientos que incluyen socialización, confianza y cooperación están íntimamente vinculados.
