- Previous research has shown that government spending can crowd out private contributions to public goods, such as charitable giving. This dissertation explores whether, conversely, private contributions also crowd out public support for government spending. The results of several experiments suggest that, at least under certain conditions, crowding-out in public opinion may occur. This crowding-out effect may be especially likely when private contributions are framed as progress rather than commitment toward a particular goal.
