Favoritism and Fairness in Teams
AbstractWe experimentally study how people resolve a tension between favoritism and fairness when allocating a profit in a team production setting. Past research shows that people tend to favor their ingroup at the cost of an outgroup when allocating a given amount of money.

We discuss the implications of our findings on how distributive norms could shape team cooperation. View Full-Text
