Equity or fairness doesn’t have a crisp definition. Reasonable people, both economists and others, have a variety of views about what is fair. There is always room for disagreement and a need to be careful and clear about the notion of fairness being used. The Big Question Can we organize our economic lives so that when each one of us makes choices that are in our self-interest, we promote the social interest? Can trading in free markets achieve the social interest? Do we need government action to achieve the social interest?

You can’t spend tonight both studying for your next test and going to the movies, so again, you must choose which one to do. Governments can’t spend a tax dollar on both national defense and environmental protection, so they must choose how to spend that dollar.

The social interest has two dimensions: efficiency and equity (or fairness). What is best for society is an efficient and fair use of resources. Economists say that efficiency is achieved when the available resources are used to produce goods and services at the lowest possible cost and in the quantities that give the greatest possible value or benefit.
