Ars Technica: The elite don’t hand out resources like the rest of us

Shachar Kariv’s research into the distributional preferences of the elite was recently covered by  of Arstechnica.

Economic inequality in the US, UK, and other developed nations has drawn attention to the attitudes and behaviours of the elite, as those who are educated in the top universities are likely to both start out wealthy and disproportionately likely to have an impact on the future of the country. To examine how this elite class would manage societal resources, the authors of a paper published in Science studied a group of Yale Law School students.
