On the Nonexistence of Pareto Superior Outlay Schedules
AbstractWillig demonstrated that in a model in which user demands are independent, a uniform price greater than marginal cost can be Pareto dominated by a nonlinear outlay schedule. However, when users are firms of different sizes which compete in final product markets, their demands must be interrelated. In such cases it may be impossible to achieve any such Pareto improvement.
