Title
Gender differences in overconfidence and risk taking : do self-selection and socialization matter?
Author
Abstract
In a large-scale laboratory experiment, we investigate gender differences in overconfidence and risk taking. Our results show that (self-)selection and socialization can eliminate the gender difference in overconfidence, but they appear insufficient to create environments in which women are as risk loving as men.
