What is the Ideal Economic Pie?
Kareen Movsesyan

Given that pie is money income, rather than material wealth, I would suggest a 5th option, which is option a with the minimal sufficiency added to the lower quintiles via a direct government employment guarantee.

This obviously has a larger pie than any of your options and is at least as equitable as options c and d.

Not sure what efficient means with an economy, but sounds dodgy.
