Globalization is alleged to restrict the state's capacity to fulfil its welfare function in advanced capitalist societies. Paper tests empirically the redistributive capacity of the state operationalized as the difference in the percentage of households living below 50% of the median income in their country before taxes and transfers and after taxes and transfers, based on the latest Luxembourg Income Study data. Results indicate that globalization and collective veto points have consistently positive effects on the redistributive capacity of the state while competitive veto points consistently have a negative effect. Veto points are sets of domestic political institutions.
