L'inexistence du luxe comme catégorie finie et unifiée : le classement hôtelier en France
In France, luxury has a significant economic weight, in particular regarding added value and employment and it is thus the object of close attention from public authorities. The French ?Industry?s general assemblies? (Etats généraux de l?Industrie) have created a strategic committee specifically dedicated to the analysis of this industry. However, despite its apparent simplicity, the word ?luxury? is surprisingly complex. The aim of this article is to demonstrate that luxury is not a limited and unified category, mainly because it hides a multiplicity of logics. In order to demonstrate this, the article presents the recent reform of hotel ranking in France and in particular the discontinuity of the ?palace? category. JEL Codes: K10, L15, L83
