Solidarity and Probabilistic Target Rules

L.H. Ehlers, B.E. Klaus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


We consider a probabilistic approach to collective choice problems where a group of agents with single-peaked preferences have to decide on the level or location of a public good. We show that every probabilistic rule that satisfies pareto efficiency and “solidarity” (population-monotonicity or replacement-domination) must equal a so-called target rule.
