抄録

An important difficulty in many models of behavioural economics is that preferences are endogenous and unstable. Therefore, preferences may not provide the most desirable yardstick to evaluate social states. The present paper proposes unconditional love as a candidate for such a yardstick. The concept of unconditional love, although lofty, is often hard to apply for practical policy recommendations. We propose an intermediary learning stage, where learning to unconditionally love is desirable, and policies that promote such learning are deemed to be good. We illustrate the use of this principle in models of endogenous altruism.
