Socialist legacy: aversion to equality?

This page in:

A new paper titled, Attitudes to equality: the "socialist legacy" revisited, analyzes whether residents of post-socialist countries have "a preference for greater income equality, other things being equal, owing to the legacy of socialism." Surprisingly or not, the authors find little evidence that supports this claim.

The authors compared the preferences of former Soviet Union countries to those of other Eastern Europe and other groups of developed and developing countries. They found that as a group, there is a significant lower preference toward moving to greater income equality!
