Preferences for Growth Models: Evidence from a New Survey

Lucio Baccaro, Björn Bremer, Kostas Gemenis, and Erik Neimanns


 
Drawing on a new survey of public opinion in Germany, Italy, Sweden, and the UK, this project aims to explore preferences for growth models at the individual level. Individuals are presented with stylized descriptions of different growth models (wage-led, profit-led, export-led, debt-led), and asked about their preferences for them, as well as their preferences for various dimensions of macroeconomic policy (wage policy, monetary policy, fiscal policy, exchange rate policy). The goal is to assess the extent of social support and opposition for growth models by country, sector, and class, and identify social coalitions based on compatible preferences. Project duration: October 2018 to October 2021.
