Therefore the aggregate value (at equilibrium prices) of the consumptions at the rearrangement is not larger than the GNP. Hence there is at least one consumer for which the value of consumption at the rearrangement is not higher than income at equilibrium. Because the equilibrium consumption for this consumer is no worse than any other affordable consumption we conclude that the rearrangement is not an improvement for her. Under convexity assumptions there is a converse result, known as the second welfare theorem: every Pareto optimum can be sustained as a competitive equilibrium after a lump-sum transfer of income.
