Decreasing Incomes Increase Selfishness

Nickolas Gagnon, Riccardo D. Saulle, Henrik W. Zaunbrecher, Nickolas Gagnon, Riccardo D. Saulle & Henrik W. Zaunbrecher
We use a controlled laboratory experiment to study the causal impact of income de-creases within a time period on redistribution decisions at the end of that period, in an environment where we keep fixed the sum of incomes over the period. First, we inves-tigate the effect of a negative income trend (intra-personal decrease), which means a decreasing income compared to one’s recent past. Second, we investigate the effect of a negative income trend relative to...

Information Source and Content – Drivers for Consumers’ Valuation of Fairly Traded Foods

Liza Von Grafenstein, Sarah Iweala, Anette Ruml, Liza Von Grafenstein, Sarah Iweala & Anette Ruml
To learn about the role of information content and source as catalysts to increase consumers’ valuation of fairly traded foods, we conducted an online survey with 2,500 consumers representative of the German population. Within the online survey, respondents were randomly assigned to one of five information treatments or the control group. We employ the contingent valuation approach to measure the willingness-to-pay (WTP) premium for chocolate with the Fairtrade label compared to similar conventional chocolate. To...

Potential of Using ICT Tools for Crop Diseases Management among Heterogenous Farmers in Rwanda

Michel Kabirigi, Zhanli Sun, Frans Hermans, Michel Kabirigi, Zhanli Sun & Frans Hermans
Social interactions among farmers, extension agents, and government officials play a critical role in knowledge development and exchange, uptake of new practices, collective decision-making in agricultural practices. Smartphones and new communication tools are likely to transform the way information exchange and social interactions take place. However, how these ICT developments will influence the communication and social interactions among farmers, and the decision-making of farmers are intriguing questions, yet to be studied. Thus, this study aims...

Research on the Coordinated Development of Rural Revitalization and Human-centered Urbanization Based on Urban-rural Integration

, , &
Although there are certain differences in the center of gravity between rural revitalization and human-centered urbanization, their connotations and goals require that both must be promoted in concert. Therefore, based on a deep understanding of the connotation of rural revitalization and human-centered urbanization, it is necessary to clarify the goals of the two through the two-way flow of elements between urban and rural areas, the urban-rural linkage of industries, to achieve coordinated promotion of rural...

Study on Virus-free Breeding Technology of Potato Microtuber

, , &
It is the simplest, fastest and effective way to improve the yield level of potato by selecting high quality virus-free seed potato for field production and maintaining the original characters of virus-free minituber. Microtuber is featured by small volume, no pathogen, convenient storage and transportation, which can be induced in summer with high temperature and humidity, and overcome a series of problems such as poor survival rate of transplanted test-tube plantlets, and easy pollution of...
