Satisfaction with Democracy and Collective Action Problems: The Case of the Environment

Martin Halla, Friedrich Schneider () and Alexander Wagner

No 3613, IZA Discussion Papers from Institute of Labor Economics (IZA)

Abstract: Using modern methods for analyzing multi-level data, we find that, by and large, citizens of OECD countries are more satisfied with the way democracy works in their country if more environmental policies are in place and if environmental quality is higher. We also document that parents care about carbon dioxide emissions more than non-parents and that those with a high willingness to pay for environmental quality deplore intervention through government policies.
