Abstract
This paper studies the Paretooptimality of the consensual optimum established in "Allaisanonymity as an alternative to the discountedsum criterion I: consensual optimality" (Mabrouk 2006a). For that, a Paretooptimality criterion is set up by the application of the generalized Karush, Kuhn and Tucker theorem and thanks to the decomposition of the space of geometricallygrowing real sequences. That makes it possible to find sufficient conditions so that a bequestrule path is Paretooptimal. Through an example, it is then shown that the golden rule must be checked to achieve Allaisanonymous optimality. The introduction of an additive altruism makes it possible to highlight the intergenerationalpreference rate compatible with Allaisanonymous optimality. In this approach, it is not any more the optimality which depends on the intergenerationalpreference rate, but the optimal intergenerationalpreference rate which rises from Allaisanonymous optimality.
