Title:Satisfaction with democracy and collective action problems: the case of the environment PDF Logo
Authors:Halla, Martin

Issue Date:2008
Series/Report no.:IZA Discussion Papers 3613
Abstract:Using modern methods for analyzing multi-level data, we find that, by and large, citizens of OECD countries are more satisfied with the way democracy works in their country if more environmental policies are in place and if environmental quality is higher. We also document that parents care about carbon dioxide emissions more than non-parents and that those with a high willingness to pay for environmental quality deplore intervention through government policies.
Subjects:Collective action problems
environmental economics and policy
satisfaction with democracy
