Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This doesn't appear to be, strictly speaking, a model of altruism as socialist political theory would define altruism (fraternity).  Rather it is merely a conventional model of self interest with altruism defined as one of the self interests around which an actor maximizes utility. From what I can see briefly, it appears to be completely consistent with neoclassical economic theory.
