The set Y ¼ Y j is the total production set, j¼1 which describes the production possibilities of the whole economy. On the production side, if V is the vector of endowments, the production possibility set can be denoted by GðVÞ. ,h. h P A given factor supply by the ith consumer is represented by V i and V ¼ V i is the i¼1 1 All vectors are treated as column vectors and transposes are denoted by  .

4) All individuals should be as well off as they were in situation 0, so if the price of a commodity rises from situation 0 to situation 1, the government will subsidise each individual by the price rise times the individual’s consumption in situation 0 . Conversely, if the earnings of a factor rise from situation 0 to situation 1 , the government will tax each individual by the wage increase times the individual’s factor supply in situation 0.

These can be quite different if assumptions about the income distribution are not made. When the model looks at a representative consumer, it assumes that this particular consumer represents consumers in the whole economy. Ohyama (1972) assumes that income distribution is the same before and after the lump-sum transfer, so the government has the role of keeping the income distribution the same, with lump-sum procedures.
