CBS, Økonomisk Institut ved Assistant Professor David Jinkins og kolleger har udarbejdet et ny tidsskriftsartikel i Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization. Artiklen Conspicuous Consumption in the United States and China omhandler (på engelsk): How do differences in the motive for conspicuous consumption in the United States and China affect the incidence of taxes in those countries?
