Title: Wieso Umverteilung" Einsichten aus ökonometrischen Umfrageanalysen
Authors: Corneo, Giacomo
Abstract: This paper summarizes the main empirical findings on the determinants of individual attitudes toward governmental redistribution of income. Using data from national and international surveys, recent studies have shown that traditional pecuniary incentives are just one - and not always the strongest - factor that shapes individual preferences for redistribution. Altruism, status seeking, and beliefs in the fairness of market outcomes constitute additional forces shaping preferences. The current paper also provides a novel investigation of the German case, based on survey data collected in 1992 and 1999. Our empirical analysis reveals that governmental redistribution of income has lost substantial support during that period.
