Abstract

This article examines the role of intertemporal choice and relative inequality, with a focus on how socioeconomic conditions and environmental pressures can yield differing cooperative strategies which impact on littering behaviour and anti-littering interventions. We apply a framework emerging from behavioural biology that has great explanatory utility and which permits researchers to consider a frequently overlooked element in littering, which is key variation within populations.
