Who Wants Income Inequality?: An Analysis of Public Choice under Income Comparison

Tongzhe Li
2016 Social Sciences  
This study investigates when individuals from advantaged and disadvantaged groups are in favor of reducing income inequality. Using a model that considers both an individual's absolute income and relative income, I examine the conditions under which income equalization is supported by some members in the advantaged group and, more interestingly, opposed by part of the disadvantaged group. In equilibrium, the valuation towards relative income, the initial endowment the difference between the two
more » ... groups and the amount of income transfer upon equalization have opposite effects on different groups' likelihood of favoring equalization. To this end, I conduct a comparative statics analysis, and the results suggest that in order to incentivize more individuals to support inter-group income transfer, a policymaker's optimal strategy substantially depends on how much the society values relative income.

In particular, we examine a context of incomplete information in which the administrator is unable to observe the resident's attitude towards recycling. The results suggest that despite the lack of information, the administrator is able to induce all types of residents to recycle when the reward is sufficiently high. Furthermore, we show that education programs, technologies that help to reduce the residential recycling cost and penalties for garbage dumping are complementary tools that could also promote recycling.

2017 Agricultural and Resource Economics Review  
This study uses an experiment where ferry passengers are sold hotel room "views" to evaluate the impact of wind turbines views on tourists' vacation experience. Participants purchase a chance for a weekend hotel stay. Information about the hotel rooms was limited to the quality of the hotel and its distance from a large wind turbine, as well as whether or not a particular room would have a view of the turbine. While there was generally a negative effect of turbine views, this did not hold
