Social status, preferences for redistribution and optimal taxation: A survey

Andrea Gallice ()

Economics - The Open-Access, Open-Assessment E-Journal, 2018, vol. 12, No 2018-55, 17 pages

Abstract: The author reviews recent studies that investigate how social status concerns influence individual preferences for redistribution and impact the design of optimal tax policies. He focuses on two aspects: the relevant dimension over which relative concerns are defined and the different formalizations of the notion of social status that the authors provide.
