All societies face a trade-off between equality and efficiency. If the United States government lowers the income taxes on the wealthiest Americans, while decreasing welfare payments to the poorest Americans, the result will likely be () in efficiency and () in equality in the United States. In recent work (Berg, Ostry, and Zettelmeyer, 2011; and Berg and Ostry, 2011), we discovered that when growth is looked at over the long term, the trade-off between efficiency and equality may not exist. In fact equality appears to be an important ingredient in promoting and sustaining growth. All societies face a trade-off between equality and efficiency.

All societies face a trade-off between equality and efficiency. If the United States government raises the income taxes on the wealthiest Americans, while increasing welfare payments to the poorest Americans, the result will likely be (1. a decrease?/2. an increase?) in efficiency and an (3. a decrease?/4. an increase?) in equality in the United States. Trading off economic efficiency for broader distribution of wealth is often seen as a desirable societal goal. Some economists see such a tradeoff as inevitable to achieve such equity. Other economists, however, assert evidence that greater equality and greater efficiency can co-exist. If the distribution of resources or goods in an economy is fair between different members of the society, it indicates equity. Efficiency is making the best out of scarce resources at the best possible price. Efficiency refers to the size of economic resource and equity refers to how this economic resource is distributed. When the resources are distributed we will be faced with a trade-off between efficiency and equity. This trade off is a central principle in economics.

All societies face a trade-off between equality and efficiency. If the United States government raises the income taxes on the wealthiest Americans, while increasing welfare payments to the poorest Americans, the result will likely be _____ (increase/decrease) in efficiency and _____ (increase/decrease) in equality in the United States. All societies face a trade-off between efficiency (productivity) and equity (fairness). Whenever a society focuses on production, they gain efficiency, but that makes the distribution of income and resources less fair throughout the population, so they lose equity. In recent work (Berg, Ostry, and Zettelmeyer, 2011; and Berg and Ostry, 2011), we discovered that when growth is looked at over the long term, the trade-off between efficiency and equality may not exist. In fact equality appears to be an important ingredient in promoting and sustaining growth. The final point is that there doesn’t have to be a trade-off between equality and efficiency. An improvement in efficiency should generally make the economy better off. There is no reason why improved efficiency has to lead to inequality. It is compatible to improve both efficiency and equity within society. Related. Efficiency vs Equality The cross-plot in Fig. 1 does not display an apparent trade-off between efficiency and equity (inequality). Actually, the simple correlation between the two is positive (about 0.2), which at face value suggests that more equity is associated with more efficiency (or vice versa); see, for example, the widely cited book ’The Spirit Level’ by Wilkinson and Pickett (2009).
