John Harsanyi’s so-called “aggregation theorem” seeks to make that affirmative case (see Adler 2012, pp. 526–527, n. 89); Mongin and Pivato (in press). 14. See also the related discussion in Adler (2013), illustrating the difference between CBA and weighted CBA with respect to risk regulation. 15. In the Adler, Hammitt, and Treich (2014) model, ci is wealth, not current income; but the two are the same if resources held in previous periods have not been saved. Because the discussion in the chapter until now has been pitched in terms of income, not wealth, I describe the Adler, Hammitt, and Treich (2014) results in those terms.

Surprisingly, perhaps, each of these prioritarian 24╇╇M. D. Adler SVRRs can be positively income-sensitive. 1 shown previously), and also on the specific utility function that translates wealth into well-being. Channeling risk reduction to a higher-income person can be expected to yield a greater increase in well-being, but this benefit is conferred upon someone who is better off (by virtue of having higher income) and thus the benefit is ethically downweighted. Note that the combination of properties characteristic of SVRRCBA— positive income-sensitivity and positive sensitivity to baseline risk—does not hold true of utilitarianism or EPP, and only of EAP under certain parameter assumptions.

Let (ci, p, ai) denote a possible bundle of income, market prices, and nonincome attributes that individual i might have. Let πS(ci, p, ai) be the status quo probability of bundle (ci, p,ai), and πP(ci, p, ai) the probability of that bundle given policy P. ) values corresponds to individual i’s preference ranking of the distributions. Then ∆ci is the amount of money such that: ∑ π S ( ««««««« ∑ π p ( i p ai ) i ( i p ai ) i p ai ) i ( i + ∆ i p ai ) = ( ci ,p ,a i )∈B ( ci ,p ,a i )∈B 8.
