Competition and Trust in Economic Exchange: Biology, the Environment, and Self-Consciousness Matter

Trust is a central concept undergirding consumer behavior, with implications for consumer and organizational welfare. We investigate how trust arises in decision-making by examining a genetic factor (the COMT gene) and an environmental variable (touch) to reveal a process explaining how and when people trust each other in economic exchanges.
