Abstract

This paper examines how the interaction of social trust and institutions, such as land administration, affects
household economic decisions in Viet Nam. Using a panel dataset of rural households from 2008 to 2014, we
show that negative consequences of the duration of land administration on agricultural investment have been
lower in rural households with higher level of trust. Higher-trust households, when facing higher barrier from
land administration, tend to invest more on agricultural land compared to low-trust households where household
heads are male. We also find that high-trust households enhance land property rights when facing obstacles from
land administration.
