This paper proposes and tests a causal path model for the influence of perceived economic justice upon support for government intervention aimed at reducing inequality. These constructs were linked by a pair of indirect pathways, mediated by social and individual attributions for poverty and wealth, and supplemented by a direct path. According to the model, the respective influences of economic justice upon individual and social attributions were expected to be positive and negative. In their turn, these constructs were expected to have negative and positive influences upon intervention. Using data from 13 countries involved in the International Social Justice Project, the expected pattern of influences was observed. However, only in certain post-communist countries was there evidence for a direct influence of economic justice upon intervention.
