Lede changed market failure summary[edit]

Lede change recently been changed, summarising market failure net social welfare loss. Before it was summarised as non-Pareto-efficient state. The two are related, which best summaries, or something else?

Yeah, this lede change seems inappropriate. Social welfare is too contestable of a term to use in the Wikipedia voice. Non-Patero-efficient is more accurate, but difficult to understand. I think maximizing economic value is the most accurate language to use.Masebrock (talk) 17:32, 16 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]
Kaldor–Hicks efficiency is a more general formulation than Pareto efficiency. --Ancheta Wis   (talk | contribs) 19:00, 16 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Sherry F. Yeung (S4381861): article assessment[edit]

This is a High-importance and C-class economics quality article. It a well-written article with a detailed explanation of market failure, which can brings the idea to viewers. The article has utilised economic evidence and theory and using formal writing, easy for people to read, though it is recommended to provide more real-life examples for further elaborations. The article includes areas and perspective within the economic area quite comprehensively but need more in-depth so as to provide people with a clearer view. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sherryfyeung (talkcontribs) 02:48, 17 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
