A Study of the Political Economy of Nationalism in Autocracies: Identity, Redistribution, and Growth

The project is concerned with the political economy of nationalism in autocracies. Zhang examines, both theoretically and empirically, how national identity affects citizens' demand for economic redistribution and political power in autocracies, and explores its implications for positive analyses of economic policies, development, inequality, and institutional change or persistence. Zhang proposes a survey experiment to test and estimate the theoretic model.
