Economic modeling of altruism is messy
@WilliamConey do they continue considering that a plausible model is time varying, event based, and needs a stochastic approach because the transfer of information on other agents' utility is not instantaneus an global? If not, probably they should. Way MORE messy.
@giuseppe_aceto This is just an entry from a reference encyclopedia (Encyclopedia of Applied Ethics - "Altruism and Economics"). Doesn't go into a huge amount of detail
Was checking it to see if what its sources they're referencing - will see what those say when they come in from Document Delivery
