Abstract

Demand of population of European countries for state-run social policy, readiness to participate in funding it and differences between these indicators are analyzed on the basis of the European Social Survey (ESS-2008) data. Readiness of the populace for the tax increases necessary to fund state-run social policy, and disparity between the demand and readiness for tax increases depend significantly upon the institutional characteristics which create fiscal illusions in people. The lesser is an extent of corruption in the state, and the more transparent and open are the spheres of fiscal and social policy, the more the demand for the social services of the people in those states matches their readiness to fund their demand via taxes.
