Registered author(s):

    El presente trabajo tiene como finalidad analizar las preferencias que los individuos muestran respecto a la protección del medioambiente, mediante la aceptación de incrementos impositivos que permitan a los diferentes Estados obtener ingresos a fin de implementar políticas de preservación del entorno natural. Para ello, se ha planteado la aplicación de modelos probit a una muestra representativa de individuos pertenecientes a diferentes países europeos durante la década de los 90, procedente de las bases de datos World Values Survey y European Values Survey. Los resultados ponen de manifiesto la influencia de factores heterogéneos, tales como la educación, la renta, las actitudes políticas o el capital social, identificando de esta manera los grupos sociales con mayor predisposición a contribuir económicamente a la conservación del entorno natural.
