Monash-UMelb-ANU Economics Paper in Science

Paper by Lisa Cameron and Lata Gangadharan of Monash, Nisvan Erkal of U. Melbourne, and Xin Meng of ANU on the effects of the one child policy on social behavior in China. They used economic experiments and sophisticated econometrics to see the effects of the one-child policy on things like trust and risk-taking. This seems to be part of a trend to more regular articles in Science on social science topics.
