Relative Income and Redistribution Preferences in Western Europe

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Many politicians would agree that an individual’s relative income (i.e., whether she is rich or poor) affects her political behavior. In political science, there is an influential literature on how pocketbook issues (Downs 1957, Key 1966, Fiorina 1981) and class (Lipset 1960, Evans 1999, Brooks and Manza 1997), both inextricably linked to relative income, influence voting choice. This paper’s analysis wishes to address one the assumptions underlying most arguments about economic voting. If relative income matters to voting choice, it seems reasonable to assume that it does so through its influence on redistribution preferences. We want to make two related points. First, we argue for a re-examination of the influence of relative income on redistribution preferences. Second, we explore a set of potential factors that explain why relative income matters in some countries but not in others.
