    Abstract

    Welfare economics or welfarism, which admits that the sole relevant information to assess social states of affairs are individual utilities (Sen, 1979), has had during a very long time an hegemonic status in the field of normative economics. The ELIE model, for "Equal-Labour Income Equalization", both in a very explicit and recurrent way, is presented as breaking with this still dominant tradition (Kolm, 2005, 2011b). This paper explores the meaning of this distancing with welfarism. It is organized as follow. After having given some clarifications concerning, on one hand, the ELIE model and, on the other hand, the welfarism, I discuss the various aspects of the opposition of the ELIE model of income redistribution to welfarism.
