Economic theory assumes that investment choices do not depend on the source of the budget. We test this assumption in the lab. In the experiments, we divide participants into two groups: those that obtain an endowment through a windfall and those that obtain the same amount through completing a physical effort task (the ”hard-earned” group). In a previous treatment, we have showed that that individuals in the hard-earned group make less risky and more patient choices than individuals in the windfall group. In the current experiment, we wish to expose the control group to a "settling in" period, so that the control and treated group spend approximately the same amount of time in the lab before making choices.
