Deadline extended

Is status-seeking behavior good or bad for well-being? And for economic growth? How can policy-makers act in order to mitigate undesired status-effects and to foster desired ones? Answers to these questions and the most recent theoretical and empirical analyses about social status will be presented in our special issue on "The economics of social status".

The deadline of submissions has been extended to March 31, 2018.
