 Kenneth Arrow, Biography: The Concise Encyclopedia of Economics: Library of Economics and Liberty
Arrow went on to show, in a 1951 article, that a competitive economy in equilibrium is efficient and that any efficient allocation could be reached by having the government use lump-sum taxes to redistribute, and then letting the market work.
Arrow also showed, with coauthor Gerard Debreu, that under certain conditions an economy reaches a general equilibrium—that is, an equilibrium in which all markets are in equilibrium.
Arrow was also one of the first economists to note the existence of a learning curve.

 Kenneth J. Arrow
Arrow's dissertation was concurrently published with another formidable piece of Cowles-inspired work: his proof of the First and Second Welfare theorems in general equilibrium theory (1951).
Arrow and Debreu began their famous collaboration which culminated in the celebrated "Arrow-Debreu" proof of existence of a competitive equilibrium (1954).
Arrow demonstrated that a full set of state-contingent commodity markets could be replaced by a considerably smaller set of Arrow securities which spanned the various possible states - and that, consequently, the optimal allocation of risk would be identical as in an Arrow-Debreu model with a full set of state-contingent markets.
