Abstract

How does economic globalization influence individuals’ welfare attitudes? Much of the focus in the literature has been on identifying the losers under globalization, and exploring whether and to what extent they demand compensation in the form of government redistribution. We argue that economic globalization shapes welfare attitudes in a more multi-faceted way. We propose four types of citizens based on self-perceived economic consequences of globalization to themselves and to the nation: collective winner, lone winner, lone loser, and collective loser. We then theorize how each type relates to three distinctive motives behind welfare demand: insurance-seeking, equality-seeking as well as compensation-seeking. We examine our theoretical expectations with the case of South Korea, where we survey social spending preferences under different hypothetical scenarios of fiscal constraint and recipient targeting.
