''Testing for indirect reciprocity in charitable activities''
( 2013, Vol. 33 No.1 )
We propose a test of indirect reciprocity using US data on charitable activities in terms of both time and money. We find that expecting help from friends or relatives in the future positively affects the probability and the amount of charitable activities performed.
Keywords: charitable activities, indirect reciprocity, expectations of future help
