Meet the Oligarchs: Business Legitimacy, State Capacity and Taxation. Rafael Di Tella, June 11, 2016, Paper, "We analyze the role of people’s beliefs about the rich in the determination of public policy. A question we study is the desirability of government-private sector meetings, a variable we argue is connected to State capacity. Survey respondents primed with negative views about business leaders want fewer of these meetings, as well as higher taxes to the top 1% and more regulation. We also study how these effects change when subjects are primed with negative views about government. A model helps interpret these findings." Link
