Paretian evaluation of infinite utility streams: an egalitarian criterion. (English) Zbl 1203.91073
Summary: We prove that Partial Pareto social welfare functions that verify Restricted Non-Substitution and Anonymity exist, and that there are explicit expressions of Strongly Paretian social welfare functions with Restricted Non-Substitution, when each generation’s utilities lie in \(\mathbb N\cup \{0\}\).
