Abstract

En este artículo se propone una formulación para la privación/satisfacción relativas, bajo la hipótesis de que los individuos muestran una preocupación por el status. Se obtienen, en primer lugar, las funciones que proporcionan la privación, satisfacción y satisfacción neta asociadas a cada nivel de renta, se estudian sus propiedades y se calculan sus valores medios para el conjunto de la población. A continuación se analiza el efecto que un impuesto sobre la renta tiene sobre ellas, tanto localmente como para la distribución en su conjunto. A este respecto es relevante la carga fiscal que recae sobre la renta máxima y su correspondiente tipo medio. This paper proposes a new formulation for the concepts of relative deprivation and satisfaction under the hypothesis of individuals worries about their status. Firstly, deprivation, satisfaction and net satisfaction functions for each income level are derived, the properties of each of them are studied and the mean values for the entire society are obtained. Secondly, the effect of an income tax over these functions is analysed, not only in local terms but also for the income distribution as a whole. Regards to this, the tax that lies on the maximum income and its average rate turn to be relevant in the formulation of these concepts. Some other conclusions about the results are given at the end.
