Socioeconomic fractality: A Poisson-process approach
Received: 4 September 2018
Accepted: 19 November 2018
Combining together socioeconomic inequality and fractals, the notion of socioeconomic fractality is introduced and explored. Two different socioeconomic perspectives are considered, and a Poisson-process modeling approach is applied. It is established that socioeconomic fractality is characterized by a power-law form: a power-law Poisson intensity over the positive half-line. The results presented here are beyond the realm of a random-variables modeling approach, and their connections to Pareto distributions and to other types of fractality are discussed.
