Lindgren: Those Who Favor Income Redistribution Are Less Happy and Less Generous

Interesting post by Jim Lindgren (Northwestern) at The Volokh Conspiracy:  Those Who Favor Income Redistribution Are Less Happy and Less Generous:

Last fall and winter, I circulated a paper on the relationship of people’s views on income redistribution and capitalism to traditional racism and to intolerance for unpopular groups [Testing Social Dominance: Is Support for Capitalism and Opposition to Income Redistribution Driven by Racism and Intolerance?]....  Arthur C. Brooks’ new book Who Really Cares ... presents data showing that conservatives tend to be more generous than non-conservatives....It appears that our analyses directly overlap only slightly, though they are certainly generally complementary....
