The Pareto principle and resource egalitarianism

Mathematical Social Sciences, 2017, vol. 85, issue C, 23-29

Abstract: This paper introduces and studies the leximin Paretian ordering, which refines the consensual leximin ordering by adding the Pareto principle to the concept of lexicographic egalitarianism. We also provide an alternative characterization of the consensual Rawlsian ordering. We introduce several new axioms, including the Permutation Pareto Principle and Internal Dominance, and study their logical relationships.
