The Effect of Subjective Abundance on Prosocial Behavior

Thinking about loved-ones induces subjective abundance, which interacts with Financial Abundance, independent of mood, so people are more prosocial when high in subjective abundance but low in financial abundance, possibly explaining differences in prosociality between higher and lower socioeconomic status individuals.
