A simple version and extension of Arrow’s Theorem in the Edgeworth Domain
This paper presents an Arrow-type result which can be simply demonstrated to hold within the standard domain of welfare economics: in the (m×n) Edgeworth Box, a best allocation must assign all goods to a single individual. Allowing the Social Welfare Function to take account of envy-freeness, or other related constructions, does not significantly resolve this problem.
