Professor Ben Ansell has started a new research project which will collect new international and historical data on wealth inequality and social mobility, and will develop an original policy database on how governments have tried to manage wealth – how they tax it, regulate it, shape its growth and transfer it from generation to generation.

Using a novel series of laboratory and survey experiments, the project will examine how citizens from across Europe think about the distribution of wealth in their countries and whether they cast it in a different light to inequality in income and employment.
