The Case for Welfare State Universalism

A paper affirming the 'paradox of redistribution': countries achieve more redistribution when they take from all to give to all, rather than when they take specifically from the rich and redistribute to the poor. The authors construct a 'universalism index', and test it across 20 OECD countries. They find support for the paradox in 21st century welfare states.
