内容摘要This study investigates how historic rice farming affects contemporary cooperative behavior. We exploit a discontinuity in rice farming generated by a natural geographic boundary in China to facilitate identification. Our results indicate that historic rice farming has a significant positive impact on cooperative behavior today. An increase in the percentage of farmland devoted to rice farming significantly increases the frequency of mutual help in terms of borrowing and lending money, caring for each other's family members, and helping each other with job seeking and house construction. We show that irrigation network and labor exchange associated with rice farming are likely potential mechanisms that have produced cultural preferences for cooperation in rice farming regions.
