Modelling the Pathways between Income Inequality and Health
The purpose of this conference is to analyse the relationship between income inequalities and health. It is widely accepted that interpersonal comparisons and relative deprivation are closely related to an individual’s life satisfaction. However, economists have been reluctant to accept claims brought forward in other disciplines that economic inequalities as such have a direct impact on individual health. The conference aims at bringing these two perspectives together and shed some light on how economic modelling can contribute to our understanding of the interplay between income inequalities, life satisfaction, and health.
