Symmetry For all x, y ∈ X , (x, y) ∈ R ⇒ (y, x) ∈ R. Asymmetry For all x, y ∈ X , (x, y) ∈ R ⇒ (y, x) ∈ R. Antisymmetry For all x, y ∈ X , [(x, y) ∈ R and (y, x) ∈ R] ⇒ x = y. The symmetric factor I (R) of R is defined by I (R) = {(x, y) | (x, y) ∈ R and (y, x) ∈ R}. The asymmetric factor P(R) of R is defined by P(R) = {(x, y) | (x, y) ∈ R and (y, x) ∈ R}. 1 Binary Relations 33 The non-comparable factor NC(R) of R is defined by NC(R) = {(x, y) ∈ X × X | (x, y) ∈ R and (y, x) ∈ R}. If R is interpreted as a weak preference relation, that is, (x, y) ∈ R means that x is considered at least as good as y, P(R), I (R), and NC(R) can be interpreted as the strict preference relation, the indifference relation, and the non-comparability relation corresponding to R, respectively.

10 Beyond Finite-Population Social Choice 31 Pareto, finite anonymity, and representability by a real-valued function are incompatible. Asheim and Tungodden (2004) provide a characterization of an infinitehorizon version of the leximin principle by adding an equity-preference condition and a preference-continuity property to strong Pareto and finite anonymity. An infinite-horizon version of utilitarianism is characterized by Basu and Mitra (2007) by adding an information-invariance condition to the two fundamental axioms.

6). As a manifesto on the role economists should play, Hicks’s statement to this effect has a strong appeal. But the real test is how “some measure of universal utility” can be constructed. Hicks went on to observe that “[d]emand theory, in its Marshallian form, appeared to offer a strikingly simple and powerful way of making such judgements. . It must be admitted—and indeed emphasized—that the econometric theory of demand provides no such easy and natural transition to welfare economics as the Marshallian theory appeared to give us.
