Jasper Meya's new article on Inequality and Valuation

Jasper Meya and co-authors study the nexus of economic inequality and the value of nature. Combing theory with recent empirical data they show that accounting for income inequality increases the value of environmental goods and that non-market benefits of environmental policy accrue over-proportionally to poorer households.
