Meng, authors of "little Emperors: Behavioral Impacts of China's One-Child Policy," had documented China's one-child policy. " And according to the narrator, "It has produced significantly less trusting, less trustworthy, more risk-averse, less competitive, more pessimistic, and less conscientious individuals." In 1979, China implemented one-child policy(OCP) aimed to restrict the number of a child every couple has to one. The policy was not only risen a land of "little emperors," but also provide a natural environment for authors to identify the causal impact of being a single child, net of family background effect. This economic Experiment conducted with 421 participants, composite with before OCP cohort (1975, 1978) and after OCP cohort (1980,1983), "it spread evenly across the birth cohorts 1975,1978,1980 and 1983, with gender balance within these cohorts." The experiment conduct not only standard games from the economics literature to test the mean difference between two cohorts, but surveys to elicit personality traits were also used, to minimize the margin of error, the experiment estimate an econometric model where they control for "participants' gender and education, maternal education, demographic and family background variables and whether the individual was born in Beijing."窗体底端
