On page 451 of Mankiw, problem #7 (include the views of John Hicks and Pareto as well). John Hicks would prefer the first distribution because Hicksian social welfare measure adds up everyone’s real income with no concern about distribution, and the total income is higher in the first distribution ($280,000) compared to the second distribution ($250,000).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
