What makes you feel like giving more or giving less?
A UT researcher hopes to find out. UT Austin Sociology Professor Pam Paxton will be looking at both individuals and comparing countries. She wants to know whether religion makes a difference, whether a countries economic system or form of government makes a difference and just basically why are some people more generous than others. Paxton says she just now got all the data to start the study but she hopes to have those questions answered in a year or so.
