We aim to investigate the interaction between ingroup favoritism and social efficiency concerns in a resource redistribution context by employing a body of controlled laboratory experiments. We adopt a parametric design to explore the conditions under which ingroup favoritism dominates social efficiency concerns.
Our results indicate a pronounced group effect, although the groups are arbitrarily and anonymously formed. The subjects consider their redistribution decisions' social outcomes; however, even under the most detrimental circumstances, ingroup favoritism dominates concerns for social efficiency. Our post- experiment survey results show that the subjects' preferences regarding inequality aversion, trust and profit orientation affect their resource redistribution decisions.
