Du paradoxe libéral-parétien à un concept de métaclassement des préférences

  • Herrade Igersheim

The purpose of our paper is to argue that Sen?s liberal paradox compels to choose a new formalism in terms of metaranking of preferences. One should complete the traditional structure of preferences by taking individual motivations into account. We show first that all the endeavours to resolve the impossibility of the Paretian liberal aim at expressing the values and motivations of the individuals. We then argue that the concept of metaranking of preferences is justified by this purpose. Finally, we submit a resolution of the impossibility of the Paretian liberal according to this notion. JEL Classification: D6, D7.
