Abstract: This paper deals with the fair ranking of allocations when individuals endowed with heterogeneous skills have other-regarding preferences over the average consumption in society. By assuming that such preferences matter for equality, we construct a social ordering function that aims to reduce differences which originate in unequal productivities.
