Prices and Pareto Optima

Sjur Flam () and A. Jourani ()

Abstract: We provide necessary conditions for Pareto optimum in economies where tastes or technologies may be nonconvex, nonsmooth, and affected by externalities. Firms can pursue own objectives, much like the consumers. Infinite-dimensional commodity spaces are accommodated. Public goods and material balances are accounted for as special instances of linear restrictions.

Keywords: first and second welfare theorem; weak and strong Pareto optimum; nonconvex tastes or technologies; public goods; externalities; local separation; subdifferentials; normal cones; (follow links to similar papers)
