How People perceive the Welfare State. A real effort experiment

The main activity of a welfare state is to impose taxes in order to collect money to provide services. In this paper we want to test subjects' perception of these two steps in the lab. In particular, using a real effort experiment as a tool, we aim at measuring both the labour supply and the consensus as the level of taxation and the efficiency of the welfare state vary.
