Subjective income and employment expectations and preferences for redistribution

Helmut Rainer () and Thomas Siedler ()

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 99, issue 3, 449-453

Abstract: Using probabilistic expectations data from the German Socio-Economic Panel, we establish a link between self-reported expectations of occupational mobility and preferences for redistribution. Our results provide new evidence on the validity of the "prospect of upward mobility" hypothesis.
