Local strict envy-freeness in large economies

Abstract

This paper proposes a concept of local strict envy-freeness (LS-envy-freeness), which is a local version of Zhou's (1992) strict envy-freeness, and investigates its implications in large economies. In spite of the weakness of this concept, it works effectively by combining with efficiency. It is shown that an LS-envy-free and efficient allocation is a strict envy-free allocation. That is, efficiency expands the local version of strict envy-freeness into strict envy-freeness. Therefore, the set of LS-envy-free and efficient allocations coincides with the set of equal-income Walrasian allocations.
