Your primary guidance is your gut feelings however before you express your feelings to others you need to rationalize them and make them defensible. Pareto optimality is often used by a number of economists to discern various social states. )

b. Can you think of a situation where your answer in (a) is no longer your preferred institution?

c. Are your answers in (a) and (b) objective and value free? Explain.
