The advantage of disadvantage in consumer distributional preferences
All else being equal, a resource is more valuable when people have less of such resource For this reason, consequentialist ethics and common sense both prescribe that people in lower socioeconomic status are more deserving targets of help, and may be granted better conditions in the marketplace However, disadvantage does not necessarily imply greater gains from a given resource Across two related projects, I show that people’s decisions of how to allocate finite resources tend to favor the disadvantaged more than what disadvantage entails from a consequentialist viewpoint When allocating life saving resources, many people choose to help the more disadvantaged even when this transparently entails saving fewer lives than they could When evaluating market transactions, people find the practice of value pricing (i e setting prices at customers’ willingness to pay) less acceptable if customers are disadvantaged.These phenomena jointly illustrate that inequality aversion can affect consumers preferences even when background distributions are not consequentially relevant.

**** Conférence en anglais ****
HEC Paris (Chair Jean Monnet), European Alternatives and Groupes d’études géopolitiques (GEG) in partnership with Europe’s Futures Program of IWM Vienna, are convening an international interdisciplinary conference in Paris to address, for the first time, the emerging and yet overlooked phenomenon of the “invisible” 17 million mobile citizens.
April 1st, 9.30am, Room S228 (S Building)
Together, there are 20 million EU citizens spread across the continent. Many of them don’t see the need to register when changing residence and often live in an administrative limbo between countries.
Those citizens whose lives are arguably the most “European” are the least politically represented.
