Conference "Cornucopia Quantified: New Goods and Improvements in Living Standards"
Topics: - What are the biases in existing measures of the welfare impact of new goods? - What do we really know about the value of variety for consumers? - How representative for the economic impact of new goods are existing historical case studies (lighting, cell phones, railways)? - What contributes more to higher living standards – new goods, or quality change of existing products? - What are the main determinants of which goods eventually come to contribute substantially to our well-being?
