Are nurses good dictators?


This poster presents a study on the use of experimental economic games to study nurses’ altruism in South Africa, Kenya and Thailand. Altruism is measured by the proportion of money given up (to fellow students, to a patient and to a poor person). Multivariate analysis was performed to investigate the determinants of altruism, and to what extent altruism was correlated to job intentions.
