Subjective income and employment expectations and preferences for redistribution - Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER)
25 Sep 2007

Panel, we establish a link between self-reported expectations of occupational
mobility and preferences for redistribution. Our results provide new evidence
on the validity of the “prospect of upward mobility” hypothesis.
