Abstract

We develop a ranking of compact, convex and comprehensive opportunity sets defined in the evaluative space of individual functionings. We suppose the existence of a target, that is a multi-dimensional bliss point in terms of functionings. This leads us to define in a novel way some concepts as essentiality and freedom. As a main result, we give an axiomatic characterization of the ranking obtained by minimizing the Euclidean distance between each opportunity sets and the target.
