Radical contingency in sharing behavior and its consequences

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (6):821-821 (2005)
The data of Henrich et al., when combined with other research, suggest that sharing behavior probably varies systematically across cultures, situations, and individuals. Economic policies founded on recognition of this “radical contingency” would, I argue, nurture economic pluralism rather than attempting to bring the world under one system.
