Abstract

We study group formation by heterogeneous players when players' preferences are dictated by status-seeking. Status can be intrinsic or associative. Considering these two types of status as either complements or substitutes results in non-emptiness of the core of the corresponding games and allows for a full characterization of the core stable outcomes.
