Box 2 . 3 Maximality condition In the utility maximum, the decision maker’s marginal rate of substitution between two commodities equals the relative price of these two goods. Equivalently, the price vector is collinear to the gradient of the utility function at the consumption point.

15) I (x(i) − /I ) = 0. 16) is simply the market clearing condition and therefore satisfied in equilibrium. 15) is also satisfied. 12). We know that the equilibrium allocation x satisfies this condition because it is an efficient allocation (by the welfare theorem). Thus, μ = p/I is a solution. We conclude that the equilibrium allocation maximizes a social welfare function that weights agents according to the reciprocal of their marginal utility of wealth, U (z) := max 1 I I i=1 1 λ− i ui (y(i)) I (y(i) − z) 0 .
