Welfare egalitarianism with other-regarding preferences
Social Choice and Welfare, 2019, vol. 52, issue 1, 1-28
Abstract We consider the problem of dividing a perfectly divisible good among individuals who have other-regarding preferences. Assuming no legitimate claims and purely ordinal preferences, how should society measure social welfare so as to satisfy basic principles of efficiency and fairness? In a simple model of average externalities, we characterize the class of social preferences which give full priority to the individual with the lowest egalitarian equivalent.
