Equality Equals Efficacy: the Effect of Power Distance Belief on Charitable Giving

We theorize power-distance belief explains why some countries and consumers are more giving. Consumers with higher power-distance belief tend to donate less due to lower perceptions of outcome efficacy when aiding others. Examining several boundary conditions of this effect, we discuss implications for both for-profit and non-profit organizations.
