Abstract:     
This paper examines how election outcomes affect individual economic expectations. In particular, we are interested in how differences in economic individualism change the relationship between election outcomes and individual expectations for personal economic well-being. We hypothesize that economic individualists will not link electoral outcomes to expectations for their personal economic well-being, while individuals who are not economic individualists will link the two. We confirm this hypothesis empirically using a postelection survey from the 1994 German Bundestag election.
