Abstract

Ideas sobre etnicidad, religion y nacionalismo entre otros, que llamamos ideologia, parecen afectar las preferencias de los votantes, los partidos politicos y, por ultimo, la politica de equilibrio. Este articulo provee un modelo politico economico que traza la influencia de la ideologia en la determinacion de la tasa de impuestos en un ambiente de competencia politica. Lo que encontramos es que, cuando la relevancia de la ideologia aumenta, el grupo de votantes con la vision ideologica mediana se convierte en los votantes decisivos. Por tal, la tasa de impuestos de equilibrio beneficia a ese grupo de votantes.
