Fundamental theorems of welfare economics
A utilitarian social indifference curve is linear and downward sloping to the right. The Max-Min social indifference curve takes the shape of two straight lines joined so as they form a degree angle.
A social indifference curve drawn from an intermediate social welfare function is a curve that slopes downward to the right. The intermediate form of social indifference curve can be interpreted as showing that as inequality increases, a larger improvement in the utility of relatively rich individuals is needed to compensate for the loss in utility of relatively poor individuals. A crude social welfare function can be constructed by measuring the subjective dollar value of goods and services distributed to participants in the economy see also consumer surplus.
Main article: Fundamental theorems of welfare economics The field of welfare economics is associated with two fundamental theorems.
The first states that given certain assumptions, competitive markets price equilibria with transfers, e. Walrasian equilibria  produce Pareto efficient outcomes.
Because of welfare economics' close ties to social choice theory , Arrow's impossibility theorem is sometimes listed as a third fundamental theorem. Numerous utility functions can be derived, one for each point on the production possibility frontier PQ in the diagram above.
A social utility frontier also called a grand utility frontier can be obtained from the outer envelope of all these utility functions. Each point on a social utility frontier represents an efficient allocation of an economy's resources; that is, it is a Pareto optimum in factor allocation, in production, in consumption, and in the interaction of production and consumption supply and demand.
In the diagram below, the curve MN is a social utility frontier. Point D corresponds with point C from the earlier diagram. Point D is on the social utility frontier because the marginal rate of substitution at point C is equal to the marginal rate of transformation at point A.
Point E corresponds with point B in the previous diagram, and lies inside the social utility frontier indicating inefficiency because the MRS at point C is not equal to the MRT at point A.
Although all the points on the grand social utility frontier are Pareto efficient, only one point identifies where social welfare is maximized. Such point is called "the point of bliss". This point is Z where the social utility frontier MN is tangent to the highest possible social indifference curve labelled SI. Criticisms[ edit ] Some, such as economists in the tradition of the Austrian School , doubt whether a cardinal utility function, or cardinal social welfare function, is of any value.
The reason given is that it is difficult to aggregate the utilities of various people that have differing marginal utility of money, such as the wealthy and the poor. Also, the economists of the Austrian School question the relevance of Pareto optimal allocation considering situations where the framework of means and ends is not perfectly known, since neoclassical theory always assumes that the ends-means framework is perfectly defined. Some even question the value of ordinal utility functions.
They have proposed other means of measuring well-being as an alternative to price indices, willingness to pay functions, and other price-oriented measures. This can make it controversial.
However, perhaps most significant of all are concerns about the limits of a utilitarian approach to welfare economics.
According to this line of argument, utility is not the only thing that matters and so a comprehensive approach to welfare economics should include other factors. Chemistry 9th.
