Cowell, Frank (1985) "A fair suck of the sauce bottle" or what do you mean by inequality? Economic Record, 61 (2). pp. 567-579. ISSN 0013-0249
The literature on the economics of inequality conventionally uses the utilitarian social welfare function as a tool for comparing income distributions. This approach usually suppresses the distinction between two types of ‘inequality aversion’. The formal analysis of these two types is examined and the results of an informal survey are reported.
