Revealed Social Preferences

Abstract: We apply a revealed preference approach to test the consistency of observed behavior with theories of social preferences. In particular, we provide revealed preference criteria for the observed set of choices generated by inequality averse preferences and by other-regarding preferences that exhibit increasing benevolence. We further apply these tests to some experimental data on dictator games. Finally, we show how to apply constructed tests to other games commonly used to study social preferences, including ultimatum, investment and carrot-stick games.
