Presenter:John Bullock, Yale UniversityTitle: “Education and Attitudes toward Redistribution in the United States.”Abstract:Americans increasingly favor education as a solution to the problem of income inequality. But little attention has been paid to the effects of education on attitudes toward inequality and redistribution. This paper examines those effects. It presents results based on longitudinal and repeated cross-sectional data which suggest that, on average, secondary education makes Americans more accepting of economic inequality and less favorable toward redistribution. There is thus an irony to the popularity of education as a remedy for inequality: even as education reduces inequality in some ways, it may promote inequality by promoting opposition to major redistributive programs.Click here to download the paper.
