Giving Behaviors of Millionaires
Reciprocity belief and gratitude as moderators of the association between social status and charitable giving
“For high-status individuals, their own value of personal success and prestige can be satisfied through signaling their good deed during social interactions with others. Moreover, the personal capacity (e.g., economic resources and power) of high-status individuals ensures them to form an expectation and belief that what they have invested will be rewarded. On the contrary, relative resource scarcity experienced by low-status individuals constrains their ability to thrive independently; rather, they tend to survive through their connections with others. Low-status individuals’ accumulated experience of being indebted from past social interactions may therefore make them more aware of others’ needs.” (Liu and Hao, 2017)
