How the Norm of Reciprocity Influences Sharing in Direct and Generalized Exchanges

We provide experimental evidence of how the norm of reciprocity influences sharing. Results show that the expected balance of reciprocity mediates the relationship between future giving and sharing intentions. When a norm is explicitly stated, sharing intensity decreases in generalized exchange, and sharing intentions are lower compared to balanced exchange.
