No 05/17, ThE Papers from Department of Economic Theory and Economic History of the University of Granada.

Abstract: Over the last two decades there has been a complex debate about the nature and limits of the consequentialism. Using these ideas this paper revises giving (altruism) in experimental dicatator games. We use results from several experimental papers plus an experiment ad-hoc designed to motivate altruism.
