Research paper no. 25, November 2012:

The paper looks into the social context within which risk attitudes are formed and participation decisions are made, using micro data from rural households in Gujarat, India. Both caste affiliation and social interaction are found to significantly affect the risk attitudes of farmers. Furthermore, social interaction seems to have a significant influence on the adoption of rainfall insurance.
