Project
Title: The evolution of tax revenues in developed welfare states: parties under constraints (preliminary title)

My research focus on the political economy of the funding of developed countries' welfare state. My objective is to have a better appraisal of the link between expenditures and revenue and to evaluate if fiscal policies tend to have similar feedback effect than social policies on citizens and political parties preferences. I also want to bring in public opinion dynamics back into comparative political economy by understanding the additional constraints public opinion exert on tax policy choices
