Abstract

The goal of this paper was to identify the reasons behind the supply for free of labor in a world where rationality requires people to avoid resource misallocation and to care mainly for their own welfare. We based the identification strategy on simple consumption and investment models with a focus on developing countries for the empirical part. Using some probability models and estimation techniques , we found an ambiguous coexistence of both intrinsic and extrinsic motives for volunteering.
