Upward classism: Prejudice and stereotyping against the wealthy

Rainer Zitelmann, Upward classism: Prejudice and stereotyping against the wealthy, Economic Affairs, 29. June 2020

Abstract

While there are many studies of prejudice towards disadvantaged minorities, there has been little research into stereotypes of rich people. The author commissioned the first international comparative study to investigate popular attitudes towards rich people. He analyses findings from the United States, Great Britain, Germany, and France, and calculates a ‘Social Envy Coefficient’ for these four countries. Envy appears most pronounced in France, followed by Germany. By contrast, envy is significantly lower in the United States and Great Britain, although there are interesting variations by age. In addition, the study subjects a sample of popular international feature films and articles in German newspapers to detailed media content analysis. This analysis finds that rich individuals are predominantly portrayed as cold‐hearted, profit‐hungry and morally suspect.

Interview with one of the leading korean daily magazin Economy Chosun

July 2020

THE RICH IN PUBLIC OPINION: WHAT WE THINK WHEN WE THINK ABOUT WEALTH

“Overall, Zitelmann’s new book presents a superb piece of analysis about the moral quagmire we find ourselves in today. Pulling together the neoliberal tradition of evidence-based analysis, Zitelmann offers a convincing and engaging prescription of how we can contend with the Jacobin and Guardian journalists who seem to derive damaging and dangerous conclusions from prejudices supported by nothing but empty air. His book presents us with exemplary scholarship and analysis, helping us understand the social and economic background of how the rich are perceived, and making the case for greater tolerance in our society. To say that it is well worth reading and absorbing the information presented in his pages would be an understatement, and an impoverishing one at that. I hope that as many as possible will read it and take its lessons to heart.” ADAM SMITH INSTITUTE, London
