In the Ricardian theory of distribution, agricultural sector being subject to diminishing returns, as production, increase

Rent share (R/q) will remain constant, wageshare (W/Q) will rise and profitshare (P/q) will also rise.

R/Q wil rise, W/Q will rise and P/Q will fall

R/Q will fall, W/Q will fall and P/q will rise

R/Q will rise, W/q will fall and P/Q will fall.


The distribution of two commodities between two individuals is said to be Pareto optimal, when

any change in the distribution makes the two individuals better off than before

any change that makes one individual better off must make, the other worse off:

any change in the economic organization increases the welfare of some and reduces the welfare of other's and those who gain are able to compensate the losers.
