The economics of pro-social behavior and the normativity of other-regarding motives

Economists do not think that all humans are selfish. But most economists explain pro-social behavior within the selfish homo economicus model. Various competing approaches try to make sense of why individuals cooperate, donate, share. It is far from clear what it really is that drives other-regarding behavior.

Supervisors: Hans Bernhard Schmid, Herlinde Pauer-Studer
