  1. In hunting and gathering societies, male parents, more often than female parents will control the marriage arrangements (406)Apostolou, Menelaos - Sexual selection under parental choice: the role of parents in the evolution..., 2007 - 2 Variables

    This study reveals that in hunting and gathering societies thought to be akin to those of our ancestors, female choice is constained by the control that parents exercise over their daughters. Since parental control is the typical pattern of mate choice among extant foragers, it is likely that this pattern was also prevalent throughout human evolution.

  3. Inequality will be related to intergenerational wealth transmission.Borgerhoff Mulder, Monique - Intergenerational wealth transmission and the dynamics of inequality in smal..., 2009 - 2 Variables

    This article explains the variation in inequality using a model in which a population's inequality depends on the extent to which its most important forms of wealth are transmitted within families across generations. Results suggest that economic systems differ substantially in the intergenerational transmission of wealth.

  4. An individual's age, sex, level of formal education, and wealth relative to others in their group will predict variations in behavior in an economic game (807).Henrich, Joseph - "Economic man" in cross-cultural perspective: behavioral experiments in 15 s..., 2005 - 5 Variables

    This article presents the results of economic behavior experiments conducted on members of 15 small scale societies. Although three different economic experiments were conducted, findings focus on the results of the "Ultimatum Game." The authors found that no society adhered to behavior predicted by the "selfishness axiom" which suggests that individuals will behave in a way that maximizes their own gain. Authors also discuss possible predictors of behavioral variation within and between groups.

  9. Among European men, greater height will be negatively associated with support for government redistribution of wealthRichardson, Thomas - Height is associated with more self-serving beliefs about wealth redistribution, 2020 - 2 Variables

    This article is primarily concerned with formidability theory. This theory suggests that physical strength among men affects their views on social issues because evolutionary physically stronger men would have benefitted from more unequal power arrangements. Thus, the author seeks to investigate an association between height and views on wealth redistribution among European men. Through modeling, such a relationship was found and the author concludes that there is support for this theory.

  10. In weakly institutionalized traditional societies, the evil eye belief will be associated with religious norms.Gershman, Boris - The economic origins of the evil eye belief, 2015 - 3 Variables

    The author analyzes 76 societies synchronically, positing that the evil eye belief functions as a useful heuristic and prosocial/cohesive element in weakly-institutionalized societies with significant wealth inequality; in particular, the evil eye belief is found to be more prevalent in agro-pastoral societies where material wealth is vulnerable and plays a dominant role in subsistence economy.
