Title: An Axiomatic Approach to Consumers' Welfare
Abstract: This paper addresses the issue of consumers' welfare using an axiomatic approach, and avoiding the assumption of utility maximization. We thus take the demand function as a primitive, and construct a measure for the consumers' welfare from a change of prices. This is done by imposing a set of axioms on this measure which uniquely determines the measure.
