Distributional orderings: an approach with seven flavors
We examine individuals’ distributional orderings in a number of contexts. This is done by using a questionnaire-experiment that is presented to respondents in any one of seven “flavors” or interpretations of the basic distributional problem. The flavors include inequality, risk, social welfare and justice. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. 2012
