Distributive Justice in International Comparison

Main Research Area:

Attitudes to redistribution, e.g. how high income taxes should be, not only separate rather "left" from rather "right" positions in the political spectrum, but also entire countries from each other, which are characterised by different redistribution systems. Extreme examples are France and the United States, which have opposing views on the right level of redistribution. While many states, including the German-speaking ones, participate in regular surveys on this topic, Liechtenstein is missing on the map. How does Liechtenstein rank in an international comparison? And what are the prevailing attitudes and values based on?
