Contrary to the predictions of non-cooperative game theory, trust and reciprocity are commonly reported in simple games. We conduct a one-shot investment game to examine how social distance affects behavior in two-person exchanges. Two aspects of social distance are examined: ex post revelation of complete information on the second playerÃ¢??s choice set and ex post revelation of information regarding the second playerÃ¢??s identity. The results indicate that reciprocity is not affected by knowledge of the choice set, but depends critically on the possible revelation of the decision makerÃ¢??s identity. That is, the possibility that the second playerÃ¢??s identity (picture) is revealed to his/her counterpart has a profound effect on the degree of reciprocity extended.
