Abstract: Applying the reciprocity instinct to monetary transactions implies that the reaction to monetary, debt and monetary credit are similar. However, evidence suggests an asymmetry. I suggest that the '' autonomy instinct '' fits better with human behavior towards money. I show that people value autonomy, and I show how money, can serve this instinct.
