When Are Women More Generous than Men? -- Cox and Deck 44 (4): 587 -- Economic Inquiry

When Are Women More Generous than Men? -- Cox and Deck 44 (4): 587 -- Economic Inquiry: “The results indicate that women tend to be more generous than men when (1) the social distance is low, (2) the total monetary cost of generosity is low, and/or (3) there is an absence of reciprocal motivation. Thus, depending on the decision context, women may appear to be more or less generous than men because men are relatively less responsive to changes in the total economic and social costs of generous behavior. ”
