Conundrums for nonconsequentialists
John A. Weymark - Presidential Address to the Society for Social Choice and Welfare
There are a number of single-profile impossibility theorems in social choice theory and welfare economics that demonstrate the incompatibility of unanimity/dominance criteria with various nonconsequentialist principles given some rationality restrictions on the rankings being considered. This article is concerned with examining what they have in common and how they differ.   Read more ›

Consistent bilateral assignment
Herve Moulin
In the bilateral assignment problem, source a holds the amount ra of resource of type a, while sink i must receive the total amount xi of the various resources. We look for assignment rules meeting the powerful separability property known as Consistency: “every subassignment of a fair assignment is fair”.   Read more ›

Implementation in stochastic dominance Nash equilibria
Eun Jeong Heo, Vikram Manjunath
We study solutions that choose lotteries for profiles of preferences defined over sure alternatives. We define Nash equilibria based on “stochastic dominance” comparisons and study the implementability of solutions in such equilibria. We show that a Maskin-style invariance condition is necessary and sufficient for implementability.     Read more ›

Working paper
Cooperation in the climate commons
Stefano Carattini, Simon Levin and Alessandro Tavoni
Given the global public good properties of climate change mitigation, mitigation efforts have to rely on the willingness of individuals to contribute voluntarily to this public good, by reducing the demand on the environmental commons either in the form of “green” consumer behaviour or through the acceptance of costly climate policy. Both are likely to be necessary.   Read more ›

On the emergence of scale-free production networks
Stanislao Gualdi, Antoine Mandel
We propose a simple dynamical model for the formation of production networks among monopolistically competitive firms. The model subsumes the standard general equilibrium approach à la Arrow–Debreu but displays a wide set of potential dynamic behaviors. It robustly reproduces key stylized facts of firms׳ demographics.  Read more ›
