Социальная политика в европейском общественном мнении: субъективный контракт между обществом и государством

Вопросы экономики. 2012. № 6. С. 127-151.
Монусова Г. А.

Using the cross-country ESS (2008) data file, the author explores welfare attitudes of population of European countries. The paper argues that expectations associated with the social policy and willingness to accept higher taxation in order to receive more benefits as well as the gap between these two depend on institutional characteristics of the countries. Poor institutions feed corruption and fiscal illusion, therefore generating misperceptions and free rider behavior.
