Abstract:

113 American graduate business students recommended annual salary increases for 10 fictitious engineers, each with a different reason for being given a raise. The mean recommendation was 9.3 percent. Recommenders were more generous if they were of lower intelligence and achievement, were not engineers themselves, and if they held strong social and service rather than theoretical and economic values. They also were more willing to spend company money for other social and personnel purposes. Author
