Does Studying Economics Affect Selfish Behavior?

This article is by Yoram Bauman who reports on research that he did at the University of Washington to determine the influence of economics education on selfishness. He found that taking a course in economics was associated with the tendency to be a "free rider".

Bauman also taught economics at the Bainbridge Graduate Institute for several years.
