  • 2020/2: Betrayed by the elites: how corruption amplifies the political effects of recessions

    Carlos Sanz, Albert Solé-Ollé, Pilar Sorribas-Navarro

    We investigate whether corruption amplifies the political effects of economic crises. Using Spanish municipal-level data and a difference-in-difference strategy, we find that local unemployment shocks experienced during the Great Recession (2008-2015) increased political fragmentation. This effect was four times larger in municipalities exposed to malfeasance than in municipalities without a...

    2020/1: Does the winner take it all? Redistributive policies and political extremism

    Gianmarco Daniele, Amedeo Piolatto, Willem Sas

    We show that regional heterogeneity of underlying fundamentals (e.g. economic history, geography, natural resources, social capital) can lead to extreme voting in federations. When the outcome of federal policies { such as transfer schemes, market regulation, migration targets { depends on these fundamentals, the set of regions that benefits or...

    Stop Invasion! The Electoral Tipping Point In Anti-Immigrant Voting

    Why do anti-immigrant political parties have more success in areas that host fewer immigrants? Recent evidence from around the world suggests that often anti-immigrant political parties receive most of their electoral support from areas where low shares of immigrants live. For example, in the 2017 French Presidential elections, Emmanuel Macron...

    2019/11: Stop invasion! The electoral tipping point in anti-immigrant voting

    Massimo Bordignon, Matteo Gamalerio, Edoardo Slerca, Gilberto Turati

    Why do anti-immigrant political parties have more success in areas that host fewer immigrants? Using regression discontinuity design, structural breaks search methods and data from a sample of Italian municipalities, we show that the relationship between the vote shares of anti-immigrant parties and the share of immigrants follows a U-shaped...
