Benjamin Enke

---- Acknowledgments ----

Previously circulated as "Kinship Systems, Cooperation and the Evolution of Culture." I am grateful to Jesse Graham, Jonathan Haidt, and Nathan Nunn for generous data sharing. An editor and referees provided extremely helpful comments. This paper would not have been possible without the inspiration provided by my conversations with Joe Henrich. I further thank Anke Becker, Filipe Campante, Ed Glaeser, Raquel Fernandez, Jeff Frieden, Paola Giuliano, Sara Lowes, Stelios Michalopoulos, Nathan Nunn, Gerard Roland, Raul Sanchez de la Sierra, Jesse Shapiro, Guido Tabellini, and many seminar audiences for helpful comments. Patricia Sun provided outstanding research assistance. The views expressed herein are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
