Reciprocal Altruism

Reciprocal Altruism refers to the human social idea and expectation that if a person performs an altruistic act, other people will perform altruistic acts in return. For instance, a person might believe that "If I do good deeds for someone in need, then someone will be there to help me when I need help." You might say that it's similar to what many people believe is karma.
