We have benefitted from comments from participants to the CSAE conference in March 2014, and from seminar audiences at CESS (Nuffield College, Oxford), Dartmouth College, the University of San Francisco, DIW (Berlin), UC Irvine, and CERDI (University of Auvergne, France). We thank Hee Youn Kwon for her assistance implementing the 2012 experiment in Oxford, John Jensenius for his invaluable help in running the 2014 Oxford sessions, and Nouhoum Traore for his assistance in implementing the experiment in Uganda and Kenya. We

are grateful to the CESS lab in Oxford and to the lab at the Busara Center for Behavioural Economics, IPA, Nairobi for their assistance with the experiment. Part of this work was undertaken whilst Ruth Hill was at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) in the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) led by IFPRI. Funding support for this study was provided by the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets. Supplemental funding for the second batch of UK sessions was provided by Stanford University.
