    Abstract. Two preimputations of a given TU game can be compared via the Lorenz order applied to the vectors of satisfactions. One preimputation is 'socially more desirable' than the other, if its corresponding vector of satisfactions Lorenz dominates the satisfaction vector with respect to the...
