Abstract

[fre] L'article de 1950 publié par Arrow sous le titre « A Difficulty in the Concept of Social Welfare », ainsi que la monographie qui a été publiée l'année suivante, ont fondé la théorie du choix social. Cette théorie a longtemps été marquée par le caractère négatif de la plupart de ses résultats, confirmant la solidité du théorème d'Arrow. Mais elle est aujourd'hui riche de perspectives de développements positifs, grâce aux propositions de mesure plus objective du bien-être individuel, d'une part, et aux résultats de la théorie des allocations équitables, d'autre part. [eng] Social choice: a difficulty and many possibilities. . Arrow's 1950 article "A Difficulty in the concept of social welfare", and his book published the year after, have founded the theory of social choice. This theory has long been characterized by mostly negative results, which confirmed the robustness of Arrow's theorem. But nowadays new prospects for positive developments are surging, which are related to proposals for more objective measurement of individual well-being, on the one hand, and to results from the theory of fair allocation, on the other hand.
