Wiki Version:
<p>This is an umbrella project for a series of studies investigating the social cognition underling support for, or opposition to, social transfer arrangements. </p> <p>All contemporary economies feature some institutionalised arrangements for transferring resources from some citizens to others; for example, welfare or social security systems. The generosity and design features of these institutions differ from society to society, as well as over time. People vary in their judgements of whether current arrangements are sufficient or insufficient, and well or badly designed; and these judgements can change rapidly. The goal of these studies is to understand the determinants of such judgements. </p> <p>Unlike classic survey research, which simply documents individual differences in view, we are taking an experimental perspective. The overarching hypothesis is that which kind of social transfer feels right depends on situational features (for example, how similar are the people to one another? how much of the variation in what they have is due to luck?). Thus, we aim to explore whether it is possible to evoke different opinions about social transfers experimentally by systematically and experimentally varying the input information.</p>
