A strong incompatibility between efficiency and equity in non-convex economies

Author

  • Maniquet, Francois

Abstract

In allocation problems of perfectly divisible goods, we study the equity property of 'no-domination', according to which no agent can receive strictly more of all goods than any other agent. We prove that no-domination is incompatible with Pareto efficiency, as soon as preferences are allowed to be non-convex.
