Fading Hope in the US
by Jo Ritzen, Klaus F. Zimmermann
(February 2012)

Abstract:
A substantial literature claims that the strong increase in inequality over the last decade in countries such as the US would lead to a collapse of society. Fading hopes in the population seem to confirm this. The paper rejects this interpretation since the decline in hopes cannot be traced back to rising inequality.
