Solution Description


When discussing views on taxes and fairness, it is often the case that wealthier people tend to have more "selfish" views on what tax policy should look like. (I put selfish in quotes because I don't really mean to impart a negative connotation but instead want to describe views that mainly benefit one's self.) It's unclear, however, whether being wealthy actually causes the selfish views or whether people who have such views are more likely to care about money nd make acquiring it a higher priority. From a scientific perspective, it would be nice if researchers could randomly give people money and see how it affects their attitudes towards taxation.
