Pro-social Motivation beyond Firm Boundaries: The Case of the Genolyptus Network
An influential body of literature in macro-management research (notably, organization theory and strategic management) associates pro-social motivation solely with firm-like organizations, suggesting that such motivation cannot thrive under more market-like arrangements.
