Keywords: Altruism is an important omitted variable in much of the Political Economy literature. While material self-interest is the base of most approaches to redistribution (first affecting preferences and then politics and policy) > there is a paucity of research on inequality aversion. In his lecture > Rueda proposes that other-regarding concerns influence redistribution preferences and that: (1) they matter most to those in less material need and (2) they are conditional on the identity of the poor. Altruism is a luxury good most relevant to the rich > and it is most influential when the recipients of benefits are similar to those financing them.
