Social Class and Prosocial Behaviors

This paper examines the influence of social class on a wide range of prosocial behaviors. Results from 2 studies in a highly unequal society indicate that individuals from rather impoverished areas behave more prosocially than their much wealthier counterparts, except when prosociality involves the donation of money or blood.
