Author

Physical Description

Notes
  • In this paper, preferences for income redistribution are elicited through a Discrete Choice Experiment (DCE) performed in 2008. In addition to the amount of redistribution as a share of GDP, attributes also included its uses (working poor, unemployed, old age, families with children, ill health) and nationality of beneficiary (Swiss, Western European, other foreigners). Willingness to pay for redistribution increases with income and education, contradicting the conventional Meltzer-Richard (1981) model. The Prospect of Upward Mobility hypothesis [Hirschman and Rothschild (1973); Benabou and Ok (2001)] receives very partial empirical support.
