For trivia's sake, such a point is known in the field of economics as a "Gaireto
efficiency", the converse of a Pareto efficiency.  An allocation is Gaireto
efficient if it is not possible to reallocate in such a way that at least one
person is worse off, without at the same time making one or more other people
better off.

That was an Econ joke.

Yeah, nobody laughed in Econ either.

Nothing to see here, move along.
