Handbook of social choice and welfare by Kenneth Joseph Arrow( Book )

44 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume set describes economists' efforts to quantify the social decisions people necessarily make and the philosophies that those choices define. Contributors draw on lessons from philosophy, history, and other disciplines, but they ultimately use editor Kenneth Arrow's seminal work on social choice as a jumping-off point for discussing ways to incentivize, punish, and distribute goods
Rational choice, collective decisions, and social welfare by Kōtarō Suzumura( Book )

22 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Choice, welfare, and development : a festschrift in honour of Amartya K. Sen by Kaushik Basu( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The opening essay formalises the concept of 'capabilities' developed by Sen, and is a particularly apt contribution, since it illustrates the possibility of blending developmental concerns with welfare economics. Other subjects tackled include the analysis of a general equilibrium model which relates to the problems of entitlements discussed by Sen in the context of famines; the rationality of choice behaviour; the problem of redistribution; individual decision-making and the symbolic value of actions; an original theorem on dictatorship; issues relating to local community-level co-operation in water allocation and management; a study of primary education in two villages in India and China; the relation between total household resources and intra-household inequality; the vulnerability of households to aggregate shocks; and the issue of mass unemployment
Competition, commitment, and welfare by Kōtarō Suzumura( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two questions are posed in looking at these issues: Can competition ever be excessive in the welfare-theoretic sense? Can policy intervention in the name of keeping excessive competition under control be justified? Starting from an elementary model of oligopoly and introducing several complexities step by step, the author shows that, for a wide class of situations where economies of scale prevail, competition can certainly be excessive in the welfare-theoretic sense, but that regulation of competition may cause serious distortions of its own. The latter distortions, he argues, should be weighed against market distortions arising from excessive competition before prescribing a policy mix of competition and regulation. Those who are interested in the proper role of industrial and competition policies in the market economics will find these theoretical results both illuminating and suggestive
Social choice re-examined : proceedings of the IEA conference held at Schloss Hernstein, Berndorf, near Vienna, Austria by Round Table of the International Economic Association on Social Choice Re-examined( Book )

32 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Spanish and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consistency, choice, and rationality by Walter Bossert( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors present a thorough mathematical treatment of Suzumura consistency, an alternative to established coherence properties such as transitivity, quasi-transitivity, or acyclicity. Applications in individual and social choice theory, fields important not only to economics but also to philosophy and political science, are discussed. Specifically, the authors explore topics such as rational choice and revealed preference theory, and collective decision making in an atemporal framework as well as in an intergenerational setting."--Publisher
Intergenerational equity and sustainability by International Economic Association Roundtable Meeting on Intergenerational Equity( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book addresses the issues of intergenerational equity, intertemporal efficiency, and collective rationality of social decision-making. How should the welfare of future generations be treated vis-a-vis the welfare of present generation? How should we design and implement social security reforms? How can we formalize the notion of sustainable economic development, and what are the conditions that warrant the sustainability of development path? In the context of the problem of global warming, where a large part of those who are responsible for causing the problem do not exist anymore, and a large part of those who will be most severely affected by the problem do not yet exist, why and how should the present generation assume responsibility to take actions against this problem? Contributions come from distinguished economists who specialize in this area, and are tied by the common thread of taking a welfare-theoretic approach to the problem
Rational choice and social welfare : theory and applications : essays in honor of Kotaro Suzumura by M Salles( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The papers in this volume explore various issues relating to theories of rational choice and social welfare and their applications. The topics include resource allocation problems, population ethics, rationalizability of choice functions and demand functions for money, game theory, individual rights, and measurements of vulnerability, diversity, and changes in individual welfare. Researchers and advanced graduate students who want to learn more about such topics will find the book very useful
