Article Reference Troff document (with manpage macros) As Good as the Networks They Keep?: Improving Outcomes through Weak Ties in Rural Uganda
We examine an intervention randomized at the village level in which female farmers invited to a single training session were randomly paired with farmers whom they did not know and encouraged to share new agricultural information throughout the growing season for a recently adopted cash crop. We show that the intervention significantly increased the productivity of all farmers except those who were already in the highest quintile of productivity and that there were significant spillovers in productivity to male farmers.

Article Reference Troff document (with manpage macros)Trust and cooperative behavior: Evidence from the realm of data-sharing
Trust is praised by many social scientists as the foundation of functioning social systems owing to its assumed connection to cooperative behavior. The existence of such a link is still subject to debate. In the present study, we first highlight important conceptual issues within this debate. Second, we examine previous evidence, highlighting several issues. Third, we present findings from an original experiment, in which we tried to identify a “real” situation that allowed us to measure both trust and cooperation. People’s expectations and behavior when they decide to share (or not) their data represents such a situation, and we make use of corresponding data. We found that there is no relationship between trust and cooperation. This non-relationship may be rationalized in different ways which, in turn, provides important lessons for the study of the trust—behavior nexus beyond the particular situation we study empirically.
