Economic efficiency (or allocative efficiency) is achieved by an economy when it is producing the combination of goods and services that people want or prefer and are able to pay for them, given their incomes. Economic efficiency implies that economy’s output-mix or pattern of production of goods and services is such that corresponds to the people’s scale of preferences. Attainment of economic efficiency also involves the achievement of technical efficiency.
