(P.II) 0 ∈ Y j for each j ∈ F . (P.III) Y j is closed for each j ∈ F . The aggregate technology set is Y = ∑ j ∈ F Y j . Boundedness of the attainable set (P.IV)(a) if y ∈ Y and y negationslash = 0, then y k < 0 for some k (No Free Lunch). (b) if y ∈ Y and y negationslash = 0, then- y negationslash∈ Y (irreversibility). P.IV is not an assumption about the individual firms; it treats the pro- duction sector of the whole economy. r ∈ R N + = vector of total initial resources or endowments. Definition Let y ∈ Y . Then y is said to be attainable if y + r ≥ 0 (the inequality holds co-ordinatewise)....
