Electoral Systems, Taxation and Immigration Policies: Which System Builds a Wall ﬁrst? (with Massimo Morelli)
When exposed to similar migration ﬂows, countries with diﬀerent institutional systems may respond with diﬀerent levels of openness. We study in particular the diﬀerent responses determined by diﬀerent electoral systems. We ﬁnd that Winner Take All countries would tend to be more open than countries with PR when all other policies are kept constant, but, crucially, if we consider the endogenous diﬀerences in redistribution levels across systems, then the openness ranking may switch.
