To simplify the exposition, we assume that the units of measurement for commodities are so chosen that the price vector at the base year is given by p0 = 1 = (1, . . , 1). We also assume that a vector of consumption c0ν exists such that partial derivatives uνcν (c0ν ) are proportional to the price vector 1: uνcν (c0ν ) = β ν 1, β ν > 0.

A∗ θ y That is, CO2 emissions in individual countries ν are proportional to their national incomes. The existence of Lindahl equilibrium is ensured by the following proposition, the proof of which will be given in the mathematical notes at the end of this chapter. Proposition 4. There always exists a Lindahl equilibrium. 6. utility measured in co2 standards The analysis of global warming we have pursued so far is based on the ordinalist approach in the sense that preference relations are essentially orderings, and any conclusion of the analysis should not depend on a particular choice of utility index.
