Altruistic behavioral grid – economic development to economic collapse


Sourav Banerjee

The paper puts forward an Altruistic Behavioral Grid with a formal theoretical construct of Altruistic behavior combining several disciplines like sociology, economics, psychology, consumer behavior, strategic management, human resource management, philosophy and criminology. Through literature the paper establishes selfish-selfless continuum and rationality-irrationality continuum as two dimensions of altruism. Through the grid, it proposes six possible altruistic behaviors. Each of them is directly linked with socio-economic development. The paper finally proves that irrational and selfish altruism can also lead to economic disturbances and even economic collapse. With all literatures combined with justification, the paper proves altruism to be a primitive and fundamental dimension of economic development.
