Welfare economics is a branch of economics that uses microeconomic techniques to evaluate well-being welfare at the aggregate economy-wide level. Attempting to apply the principles of welfare economics gives rise to the field of public economics , the study of how government might intervene to improve social welfare. Welfare economics also provides the theoretical foundations for particular instruments of public economics, including cost—benefit analysis , while the combination of welfare economics and insights from behavioral economics has led to the creation of a new subfield, behavioral welfare economics. The field of welfare economics is associated with two fundamental theorems. The first states that given certain assumptions, competitive markets produce Pareto efficient outcomes;  it captures the logic of Adam Smith's invisible hand. A typical methodology begins with the derivation or assumption of a social welfare function , which can then be used to rank economically feasible allocations of resources in terms of the social welfare they entail. Such functions typically include measures of economic efficiency and equity, though more recent attempts to quantify social welfare have included a broader range of measures including economic freedom as in the capability approach.
