Abstract

This paper presents empirical evidence concerning the tough love model of intergenerational altruism from U.S. and Japanese survey data. Our main finding is that parents' tendencies for tough love behavior depend on different measures of discount factors. We also investigate the hypotheses that parents' tendencies for tough love behavior is affected by their religious affiliations, religiosity, and their worldviews.
