This paper discusses prescriptive models for an individual's or society's tradeoffs between different objectives. These objectives may refer to different attributes, different time-periods, or different individuals. Conditions on tradeoffs are shown to imply additive value functions that are sufficiently structured to be tractable in applications and are sufficiently general to represent preference issues concerning equity between the objectives and the dependence of tradeoffs on status quo positions.
