Ordinalism rules out information on the intensities of preferences. They also interpret the Bergson-Samuelson tradition of writing social welfare as a function of individual ordinal utilities as implying all three subconditions. Since the other conditions of Arrow's Impossibility Theorem (weak Pareto principle, freedom of individual orderings, and non-dictatorship) are also accepted by the Bergson-Samuelson tradition, the latter, according to Kemp and Ng, is subject to Arrow's theorem, and the Little-Samuelson rejection of Arrow's theorem as irrelevant to welfare economics becomes itself irrelevant with the impossibility propositions of Kemp, Ng, and Parks within the framework of a fixed set of individual preferences.
Continuing along the theme of Arrow's contributions to decision making under uncertainty which have provided a foundation that is now standard in monetary and financial economics, Friedman and Roley provide three conclusions related to the three sections of Chapter 20: first, asset demands with the familiar properties of wealth homogeneity and linearity in expected returns follow as close approximations from expected utility maximizing behaviour under the assumptions of constant relative risk aversion and joint normally distributed asset returns.
Production functions and budget constraints). Tinbergen favours measurability of social welfare along Pigovian lines and advocates a specific way of performing the measurement. In Chapter 10 Salop and Stiglitz pick up two central themes of Arrow's work: information and welfare. The analysis of welfare economics in the presence of imperfect information is a subtle and difficult matter. It is clear that the standard proofs do not apply directly; it is also clear that economies with imperfect information will in general not perform as well as economies with perfect information.
