Radner’s cost–benefit analysis in the small: An equivalence result
I show that local changes in five welfare measures are equal: a measure proposed by Radner (1993); consumers’ surplus; the Slutsky change in real wealth; the Divisia quantity index, and Debreu’s (1951) coefficient of resource utilization (the last two rescaled in units of a numeraire good).
