My Money Is Yours, But My Time Is Still Mine: Inseparability of Consumption From the Self Increases Control and Giving

We introduce the inseparability of the self from consumption as a previously unexamined time/money difference. We demonstrate the implications of this asymmetry on perceived control and subsequently on donation behavior. Consumers donate resources they perceive having control over and use donations of time to compensate for lack of control.
