Welfare, Ethnicity, and Altruism applies the controversial theory
of 'Ethnic Nepotism', first formulated by Irenaus Eibl-Eibesfeldt
and Pierre van den Berghe, to the modern welfare state (both are
authors in this volume). This theory states that ethnic groups
resemble large families whose members are prone to cooperate due to
'kin altruism'. Recent empirical findings in economics and
political science offer confirmatory evidence. The book presents
two separate studies that compare welfare expenditures around the
world, both indicating that the more ethnically mixed a population
becomes, the greater is its resistance to redistributive policies.
These results point to profound inconsistencies within ideologies
of both left and right regarding ethnicity.
