Abstract

Citizen consumption has become over the past few years an ever growing type of behaviour, in which citizens express by their consumption choices their political, environmental and ethical preferences. This paper wonders to what extend citizen consumption may represent an effective and fair instrument against market failures. Overall, it seems that it is better to consider citizen consumption as a complement to public policies.
