A Theoretical Perspective on Guilt and Materialism in Helping Behavior

In this theoretical paper, we discuss the positive effect of a negative emotion, such as guilt, on individuals’ attitudes toward charitable giving. In particular, we propose that this effect is stronger for individuals with high levels of consumer materialism when compared with their low-materialism counterparts.
