One response is to separate the efficiency and equity effects for actual dollar changes in utility so that people can make their own assessments about the final welfare changes. Potential welfare changes are frequently referred to as efficiency effects because they isolate changes in real income from using resources more efficiently, while equity effects identify how these potential welfare effects are distributed across consumers. Hatta (1977) proves an important relationship between the efficiency and equity effects for marginal policy changes, and does so in a single (aggregated) consumer economy with constant producer prices.

Since tax t1 is the amount marginal value exceeds marginal cost in this market the welfare loss is equal to the fall in tax revenue. Thus, the tax on good 2 exacerbates the welfare loss from the existing tax on good 1 by driving demand even lower. 28Comparing the DWL measures for good 1. 28 for the two taxes when goods 1 and 2 are net substitutes. 29) which integrates the marginal deadweight losses from introducing each tax sequentially, as: A number of approximations are used to measure the DWLs for multiple taxes.

This is similar to the approximation used by Harberger who applies a Taylor series expansion to linearize the triangular DWL areas. 4 SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS A number of important issues are raised by this overview. First, due to the absence of cardinal utility functions welfare changes for individual consumers are measured as dollar changes in utility. However, income (or the good chosen as numeraire) is unreliable as a proxy for utility whenever the marginal utility of income changes with real income because it makes dollar changes in utility path dependent.
