Current meta-analytic estimate of Effect #2 Method #4 replications:


Summary: The claim that incidental exposure to money influences social behavior/beliefs currently exhibits replication difficulties (overall meta-analytic effect: d = -.01 [+/-.05]). This appears to be the case whether money exposure is manipulated via instruction background images (Caruso et al., 2013, Study 1 & 4) or descrambling sentence task (Vohs et al., 2006, Study 3) and whether outcome variable is helping others (Vohs et al., 2006, Study 3), system justification beliefs (Caruso et al., 2013, Study 1), just world beliefs (Caruso et al., 2013, Study 2), social dominance beliefs (Caruso et al., 2013, Study 3), or fair market beliefs (Caruso et al., 2013, Study 4). Of course, it's possible money exposure reliably influences behavior under other (currently unknown) conditions, via other operationalizations, and/or using other experimental designs (e.g., within-subjects).
