Abstract: The broad concept of an individual s welfare is actually a cluster of relatedspecific concepts that bear a "family resemblance " to one another. One mightcare about how a policy will affect people both in terms of their subjectivepreferences and also in terms of some notion of their objective interests. Thispaper provides a framework for evaluation of policies in terms of welfarecriteria that combine these two considerations. Sufficient conditions areprovided for such a criterion to imply the same ranking of social states asdoes Pareto s unanimity criterion. Sufficiency is proved via study of acommunity of agents with interdependent ordinal preferences.
