Title: Vote Your Region or Vote Your Income? Decomposing Variance in Redistributive Voting
Speaker: Dr. Melissa Rogers, Associate Dean, School Of Social Science, Policy & Evaluation and Associate Professor of International Studies at Claremont Graduate University
Dr. Rogers will share insights on how regional productivity impacts public support for pro-redistribution parties. In a European sample, Dr. Rogers and coauthor, Dr. Lee, find that rich and poor people in less productive regions vote significantly more for parties opposed to redistribution than their counterparts in more productive regions, leading to productive regions that rely on human capital and consumption, and less productive regions that rely on taxation and targeted benefits.
