Economic Models of Sin and Remorse: Some Simple Analytics
Economists have recently shown a renewed interest in studying immoral behavior and the feelings of guilt or remorse that such acts engender.

The present paper reviews and formalizes several such efforts in an attempt to form a more unified starting point for future research in this area.
