  • Population Lorenz-monotonic allocation schemes for TU-games

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Sprumont (Games Econ Behav 2:378–394, 1990) introduces population monotonic allocation schemes (PMAS) and proves that every assignment game with at least two sellers and two buyers, where each buyer-seller pair derives a positive gain from trade, lacks a PMAS. In particular glove games lacks PMAS. We propose a new cooperative TU-game concept, population Lorenz-monotonic allocation schemes (PLMAS), which relaxes some population monotonicity conditions by requiring that the payoff vector of any coalition is Lorenz dominated by the corresponding restricted payoff vector of larger coalitions. We show that every TU-game having a PLMAS is totally balanced, but the converse is not true in general. We obtain a class of games having a PLMAS, but no PMAS in general. Furthermore, we prove the existence of PLMAS for every glove game and for every assignment game with at most five players. Additionally, we also introduce two new notions, PLMAS-extendability and PLMAS-exactness, and discuss their relationships with the convexity of the game.

  • Probabilistic models of profiles for voting by evaluation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Considering voting rules based on evaluation inputs rather than preference rankings modifies the paradigm of probabilistic studies of voting procedures. This article proposes several simulation models for generating evaluation-based voting inputs. These models can cope with dependent and non identical marginal distributions of the evaluations received by the candidates. A last part is devoted to fitting these models to real data sets.

  • Generalized welfare lower bounds and strategyproofness in sequencing
           problems

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In an environment with private information, we study the class of sequencing problems with welfare lower bounds. The “generalized welfare lower bound” represents some of the lower bounds that have been previously studied in the literature. Every agent is offered a protection in the form of a minimum guarantee on their utilities. We provide a necessary and sufficient condition to identify an outcome efficient and strategyproof mechanism that satisfies generalized welfare lower bound. We then characterize the entire class of mechanisms that satisfy outcome efficiency, strategyproofness and generalized welfare lower bound. These are termed as “relative pivotal mechanisms”. Our paper proposes relevant theoretical applications namely; ex-ante initial order, identical costs bound and expected cost bound. We also give insights on the issues of feasibility and/or budget balance.

  • Padding and pruning: gerrymandering under turnout heterogeneity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Padding is the practice of adding nonvoters (e.g., noncitizens or disenfranchised prisoners) to an electoral district in order to ensure that the district meets the size quota prescribed by the one man, one vote doctrine without affecting the voting outcome in the district. We show how padding— and its mirror image, pruning—, can lead to arbitrarily large deviations from the socially optimal composition of elected legislatures. We solve the partisan districter’s optimal padding problem.

  • Partitionable choice functions and stability

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We consider the two-sided many-to-one matching problem and introduce a class of preferences reflecting natural forms of complementarities. For example, academic departments hire seniors and then supporting juniors, teams recruit different roles and specialties, starting with the critical ones, and firms hire workers at various levels, starting with the executives. The key feature is that a firm can partition workers into types and prioritize certain types before others. Despite this partitionability requirement of choice functions being weaker than substitutes—an essential condition concerning the existence of a stable assignment—we show that it still guarantees the existence of a stable assignment and is further a maximal domain for such.

  • On the optimality of policy choices in the face of biased beliefs,
           retrospective voting and the down-up problem

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Previous literature has shown that voters’ biased beliefs regarding policy outcomes incentivize the selection of seemingly better, but socially worse, policies. It has also shown that voters’ tendency to gauge an incumbent’s competence by the present state of the economy (retrospective voting) could counteract biased beliefs. In this article, we argue that, when the advantageous consequences of a measure of policy only accrue with considerable lag (the down-up problem), retrospective voting instead amplifies the effects of biased beliefs. Still, we find that it may nevertheless be optimal for an incumbent to select good long-term policies if the incumbent is strongly motivated by the success of the chosen policies. Finally, we investigate the robustness of these conclusions by considering an incumbent bias, limited accountability, and the introduction of incentive and threshold contracts.

  • Patent package structures and sharing rules for royalty revenue

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The role of patent pools—one-stop systems that gather patents from multiple patent holders and offer them to users as a package—is gaining research attention. To bolster the scarce stream of the literature that has addressed how a patent pool agent distributes royalty revenues among patent holders, we conduct an axiomatic analysis of sharing rules for royalty revenue derived from patents managed by a patent pool agent. In our framework, the patent pool agent organizes the patents into some packages, which we call a package structure. By using the hypergraph formulation developed by van den Nouweland et al. (Int J Game Theory 20:255–268, 1992), we analyze sharing rules that consider the package structure. In our study, we propose a sharing rule and show that it is the unique rule that satisfies efficiency, fairness, and independence requirements. In addition, we analyze sharing rules that enable a patent pool agent to organize a revenue-maximizing and objection-free profile.

      Abstract: Abstract We investigate sequential two-stage admission systems with public and private schools. A sequential notion of truthfulness, called straightforwardness, is introduced. Contrary to one-stage systems, sequentiality leads to a trade-off between the existence of a straightforward equilibrium and non-wastefulness. We identify the unique set of rules for two-stage systems that guarantees the existence of a straightforward equilibrium and reduces waste. Existing admission systems in Türkiye and Sweden are analyzed within our general framework.

  • Partial-implementation invariance and claims problems

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the context of claims problems, we formulate an axiom of invariance of a rule with respect to its “partial implementation”: having applied the rule to a problem in its domain of definition, we imagine some claimants picking up their awards and we consider the problem of distributing what remains of the endowment among the other claimants: in this problem, the claims of the first group of claimants are set equal to zero and the endowment is adjusted down by the sum of their awards; we require of a rule that it assign to each remaining claimant the same amount as it did initially. We formulate several variants of this requirement of “partial-implementation invariance” and a “converse” of it. We investigate how the two requirements relate to known axioms and ask whether they are preserved by certain operators that have been defined on the space of rules. Our main result is a characterization in our fixed-population framework of a family of rules introduced and characterized by Young (Math Oper Res 12(3):398–414, 1987) in a variable-population framework. These rules are known under the name of “parametric rules”.

  • Selection closedness and scoring correspondences

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Universal self-selectivity of a social choice function (SCF) F defined in Koray (Econometrica 68:981–995, 2000) implies that F is either dictatorial or anti-dictatorial. In an attempt to escape this impossibility, here we weaken self-selectivity of an SCF by introducing the notion of selection-closedness pertaining to families of SCFs. As in the self-selectivity setting, a society, which is to make a choice from a set A of alternatives, is also to choose the choice rule that will be employed in making that choice. Self-selectivity of an SCF F requires that F outrivals all available SCFs by selecting itself from among them if it is also used in choosing the choice rule, where the societal preferences on the available SCFs are induced from those on the set A of alternatives in a consequentialist way. Given a collection \({\mathscr {F}}\) of SCFs and a nonempty finite set \({\mathcal {A}}\) of available SCFs containing also members of \({\mathscr {F}},\) an SCF in \({\mathscr {F}} \cap {\mathcal {A}}\) is now not required any more to select itself from \({\mathcal {A}},\) but it suffices that it selects some member of \({\mathscr {F}}\) for \({\mathscr {F}}\) to be selection-closed. It is shown that a proper subset of the collection of all neutral SCFs is selection-closed if and only if all its members are either dictatorships or anti-dictatorships. We further weaken the notion of selection-closedness to an extent that not only enables us to escape the impossibility result, but also equips us with a yardstick to compare correspondences as to whether or not their singleton valued refinements form a weakly selection-closed family. A rich family of scoring correspondences with strict scoring vectors are shown to pass the test of weak selection-closedness, while the Pareto and Condorcet correspondences fail.

  • Christian Klamler’s ”A distance measure for choice functions”
           [Social Choice and Welfare 30 (2008) 419–425]: a correction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract An extensive choice over X is a function assigning to any subset S of X a possibly empty subset of S. Klamler (Soc Choice Welf 30:419–425, 2008) shows that the operation of symmetric difference induces a metric on the family of extensive choices over X, and this metric is characterized by five axioms A1–A5. We provide counterexamples to Klamler’s result, suggest a slight modification of axioms A4 and A5 to obtain a correct characterization, and finally observe that axiom A4 is redundant.

  • Overbidding and underbidding in package allocation problems

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We study the problem of allocating packages of different objects to a group of bidders. A rule is overbidding-proof if no bidder has incentives to bid above his actual valuations. We prove that if an efficient rule is overbidding-proof, then each winning bidder pays a price between his winning bid and what he would pay in a Vickrey auction for the same package. In counterpart, the set of rules that satisfy underbidding-proofness always charge a price below the corresponding Vickrey price. A new characterization of the Vickrey allocation rule is provided with a weak form of strategy-proofness. The Vickrey rule is the only rule that satisfies efficiency, individual rationality, overbidding-proofness and underbidding-proofness. Our results are also valid on the domains of monotonic valuations and of single-minded bidders. Finally a family of overbidding rules is introduced that price the assigned packages at a fixed average of the Vickrey price and the pay-as-bid price.

  • Collective or individual rationality in the Nash bargaining solution:
           efficiency-free characterizations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the classical bargaining problem, we propose a very mild axiom of individual rationality, which we call possibility of utility gain. This requires that for at least one bargaining problem, there exists at least one player who reaches a higher utility level than their disagreement utility. This paper shows that the Nash solution (Nash in Econometrica 18(2):155–162, 1950) is characterized by possibility of utility gain and continuity with respect to feasible sets together with Nash’s axioms except weak Pareto optimality. We also show that in Nash’s theorem, weak Pareto optimality can be replaced by conflict-freeness (introduced by Rachmilevitch in Math Soc Sci 76(C):107–109, 2015). This demands that when the agreement most preferred by all players is feasible, this should be chosen. Furthermore, we provide alternative and unified proofs for other efficiency-free characterizations of the Nash solution. This clarifies the role of each axiom in the related results.

  • Do conservative central bankers weaken the chances of conservative
           politicians'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we challenge the claim that a conservative central bank strengthens the likelihood of a conservative government. In contrast, if an election is based on the comparative advantages of the candidates, an inflation-averse central banker can deter the chances of a conservative candidate because once inflation is removed, its comparative advantage in the fight against inflation disappears. We develop a theory based on a policy-mix game with electoral competition, predicting that a tighter monetary policy reduces the chances of a conservative (i.e., inflation-adverse) party while enhancing the chances for a liberal party. To test these predictions, we examine monthly data of British political history between 1987 and 2015, and show that an increase in the interest rate in the 10 months preceding a national election decreases the popularity of a Tory government. Our analysis on a panel of six OECD countries reveals that a pre-election increase of 1 percentage point in the main targeted interest rate rises the popularity of liberal parties by around 3.43 percentage points relative to its trend.

  • Approval-based voting with mixed goods

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We consider a voting scenario in which the resource to be voted upon may consist of both indivisible and divisible goods. This setting generalizes both the well-studied model of multiwinner voting and the recently introduced model of cake sharing. Under approval votes, we propose two variants of the extended justified representation (EJR) notion from multiwinner voting, a stronger one called EJR for mixed goods (EJR-M) and a weaker one called EJR up to 1 (EJR-1). We extend three multiwinner voting rules to our setting—GreedyEJR, the method of equal shares (MES), and proportional approval voting (PAV)—and show that while all three generalizations satisfy EJR-1, only the first one provides EJR-M. In addition, we derive tight bounds on the proportionality degree implied by EJR-M and EJR-1, and investigate the proportionality degree of our proposed rules.

  • Axiomatization of some power indices in voting games with abstention

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Power measures are used to quantify the influence of members of a democratic institution. We consider voting games with abstention or (3,2) games, which are decision-making processes in which voting options include yes, no and abstention. The power indices that we study are based on the notions of minimal and shift minimal winning tripartitions. We define and characterize the Deegan–Packel and shift Deegan–Packel power indices in the class of (3,2) games. Furthermore, owing to the parameterization result obtained by Freixas et al. (Discret Appl Math 255:21–39, 2019), we provide computational formulae of these indices in the class of I-complete (3,2) games. These formulae allow us to determine the power of each player in a game, regardless of the number of minimal and/or shift minimal winning tripartitions of the game.

           incentive compatibility

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper studies a general class of social choice problems in which agents’ payoff functions (or types) are privately observable random variables, and monetary transfers are not available. We consider cardinal social choice functions which may respond to agents’ preference intensities as well as preference rankings. We show that a social choice function is ex ante Pareto efficient and Bayesian incentive compatible if and only if it is dictatorial. The result holds for arbitrary numbers of agents and alternatives, and under a fairly weak assumption on the joint distribution of types, which allows for arbitrary correlations and asymmetries.

  • Forms of new democracy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the third decade of the 21st century, digitization and artificial intelligence, global events, challenges from authoritarian states, and difficulties of particular democracies to function properly confront democracy with a new series of challenges and opportunities that will force it to reinvent itself. The last decades have produced an accelerating flow of ideas for new forms of democracy. We survey a long period in the quest for such new forms and point to next inventions for such forms. We suggest to experiment with new ways for democracy to extend the choice of democratic processes that can be implemented in real-life situations, with the beneficial side-effect that democracy might remain the only sustainable structure for self-governing societies.

  • Berge equilibrium, altruism and social welfare

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Welfare and other properties of Berge equilibria are investigated. In particular, we address the questions to what extent Berge equilibrium can select from multiple Nash equilibria; can serve as a substitute for Nash equilibria; can Pareto improve upon Nash equilibrium. Furthermore, some of the recent results on the relation between Berge equilibria and Kantian equilibria are summarized.
