Fixed‐step anonymous overtaking and catching‐up

International Journal of Economic Theory, 2010, vol. 6, issue 1, 149-165
We investigate criteria for evaluating infinite utility streams that satisfy fixed‐step anonymity and include some notion of overtaking or catching‐up. We do so in a generalized setting that does not require us to specify the underlying finite‐dimensional criterion (e.g. utilitarianism or leximin). We present axiomatizations that rely on weaker axioms than those in the literature, and which in one case is new. We also provide a complete analysis of the relationships between the symmetric parts of these criteria and likewise for the asymmetric parts.
