Environmental Morale and Motivation


Frey, Bruno S; Stutzer, Alois (2006). Environmental Morale and Motivation. Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 288, University of Zurich.

Abstract

This chapter discusses the role of environmental morale and environmental motivation in individual behavior from the point of view of economics and psychology. It deals with the fundamental public good problem, and presents empirical (laboratory and field) evidence on how the cooperation problem can be overcome. Four different theoretical approaches are distinguished according to how individuals’ underlying environmental motivation is modeled. Specifically, we look at the interaction between environmental policy and environmental morale through the lens of cognitive evaluation theory (also known as crowding theory).
