wealth maximization.A situation resulting from a change in the allocation of resources if the change benefits the winner — i.e., the one who benefits from the change — more than it harms the loser. • A situation in which all possible wealth-maximizing changes have occurred is described as Kaldor-Hicks efficient or as being potentially Pareto superior. See PARETO OPTIMALITY; PARETO SUPERIORITY.
