Kovács, K. (2014). A vebleni hivalkodó fogyasztás elméletének továbbfejlődése és újszerű megnyilvánulásai. Competitio, 13(2), 23-35. https://doi.org/10.21845/comp/2014/2/2

A tanulmány arra összpontosít, hogyan fejlesztették tovább a Thorstein Veblen által leírt hivalkodó fogyasztás elméletét a modern közgazdaságtan művelői. Ennek során rámutatok a státusz és a státuszjavak hivalkodó fogyasztáshoz való kapcsolódására. Kiemelem az ár többszörös szerepét, és hogy nem szükségszerűen helytálló a feltételezett pozitív irányú ár–keresett mennyiség viszony. Elemzem a hivalkodó fogyasztás sokrétű motivációit és következményeit. Végül, kiemelem a hivalkodó fogyasztás újszerű jellegét: a pazarlás helyett a kulturális tőke, az ízlés kerül a középpontba, a vagyon helyett pedig a
jövedelemmel való összefüggések kapnak jelentőséget.
