Economic Incentives and Social Preferences: Substitutes or Complements?
S. Bowles and

VOPROSY ECONOMIKI, 2013, vol. 4
Part 1 Explicit economic incentives designed to increase contributions to public goods and to promote other pro-social behavior sometimes are counterproductive or less effective than would be predicted among entirely self-interested individuals. This may occur when incentives adversely affect individuals’ altruism, ethical norms, intrinsic motives to serve the public, and other social preferences. The opposite also occurs—crowding in — though it appears less commonly.
