Abstract

Most existing literatures concentrated on other-regarding preferences adopt standard experimental methods on university students, but there is a lack of studies covering subjects across broader age spectrum and social identities. An individual’s preferences, especially other-regarding preferences may develop throughout his or her life. We designed and conducted an artefactual field experiment based on “China Genuine Progress indicator Survey(CGPiS)”, a random sampled household survey. The experiment involved 320 participants from Beijing and Chengdu with age from 17 to 70. Via four binary-choice dictator games, we investigated the development and gender difference of other-regarding preferences. The result shows: people become more egoistic and less egalitarian as they age, and altruism reaches its top during age 41-50, declines during 51-60, and then rises after retirement age. Meanwhile, a vast gender difference was found during the age of 31-40 and 51-60, when egoism and egalitarianism in man and woman present opposite pictures. Education promotes the transformation of egoism into egalitarianism significantly. We also attempt to explain the development of other-regarding preference and it’s gender difference from the perspective of family-life-cycle.
