Expressive attitudes to compensation: The case of globalization

Martin Rode and Andrea Sáenz de Viteri

European Journal of Political Economy, 2018, vol. 54, issue C, 42-55

Abstract: Using survey data from the World Values Survey and the Comparative Manifesto Project, we empirically study attitudes towards the proposal that government compensation should be provided for individuals adversely affected by globalization. We include roles for personal experience with globalization and ideology of individuals and political parties, noting also the general problem of expressiveness in survey data, where responders who favored compensation did not actually have to pay to help. Findings indicate that attitudes to actual compensation depend on exposure to globalization but are substantially qualified by ideology.
