Envy-Free Configurations in the Market Economy
AbstractUsing an extended framework in which an agent is endowed with three types of preference orders: an allocation preference order, an opportunity preference order, and an overall preference order, this paper introduces several notions related to efficiency and equity-as-no-envy and examines the performance of competitive market mechanisms. We also axiomatically characterize the equal income Walras rule for pure exchange economies.
