Choice, welfare, and development : a festschrift in honour of Amartya K. Sen by
Kaushik Basu(
Book
)
10 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 325 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 decisionmaking and the symbolic value of actions; an original theorem on dictatorship; issues relating to local communitylevel cooperation in water allocation and management; a study of primary education in two villages in India and China; the relation between total household resources and intrahousehold inequality; the vulnerability of households to aggregate shocks; and the issue of mass unemployment

Distributive justice and inequality : a selection of papers given at a conference, Berlin, May 1986 by
Wulf Gaertner(
Book
)
10 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From May 20 to May 24, 1986 a conference on distributive justice and in equality was held at the Institute for Advanced Study Berlin (Wis senschaftskolleg zu Berlin). More than thirty scholars participated in this conference. The topics of the presentations ranged from ethics, welfare economics and social choice theory to characterizations of inequality meas ures and redistributive taxation schemes. This book contains a selection of the papers given at the conference. This collection of articles also appeared as issues 2 and 3 of volume 5 of Social Choice and Welfare. In the first paper P. Suppes argues for a pluralistic concept of equity. For too long the emphasis has been on income distribution but there are other characteristics which are important when one talks about equity. Suppes suggests that it would be desirable to have Lorenz curves for a variety of fea tures of societies, such as education, health and housing. P. Dasgupta studies the quality of lives in terms of an index of living stand ards. One has to distinguish between "same number choices" (the number of lives is given) and "different numbers choices" (problem of optimum popUlation). The author argues that in the latter case the anonymity (or sym metry) axiom cannot be readily defended. Once it is dropped, however, an incoherence in the moral ordering of possible worlds arises. The moral basis for different numbers choices becomes generationdependent, an overall moral ordering of possible worlds no longer exists

The papers in this volume explore various issues relating to theories of rational choice and social welfare and their applications.

Comparative statics for a consumer with possibly multiple optimum consumption bundles by
Indraneel Dasgupta(
)
3 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nonpositivity of the generalized substitution effect, nonpositivity of the ownprice substitution effect, homogeneity of degree zero in all prices and income, and the law of demand are some of the most primitive comparative static results in the standard revealed preference theory of consumers' behaviour. These results are however derived for demand functions. The literature does not have corresponding comparative static results for the more plausible case of demand correspondences, where the consumer is permitted to have multiple chosen bundles in a given priceincome situation. Using the revealed preference approach to the theory of consumers' behaviour, this note establishes such results for demand correspondences; the analysis can be readily adapted to prove corresponding results in the preferencebased approach.  Demand correspondence ; weak axiom of revealed preference ; nonpositivity of generalized substitution effect ; nonpositivity of ownprice substitution effect ; homogeneity of degree zero ; law of demand

The Arrow impossibility theorem by
Eric Maskin(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kenneth J. Arrow's pathbreaking "impossibility theorem" was a watershed innovation in the history of welfare economics, voting theory, and collective choice, demonstrating that there is no voting rule that satisfies the four desirable axioms of decisiveness, consensus, nondictatorship, and independence. In this book Eric Maskin and Amartya Sen explore the implications of Arrow's theorem. Sen considers its ongoing utility, exploring the theorem's value and limitations in relation to recent research on social reasoning, and Maskin discusses how to design a voting rule that gets us closer to the ideal  given the impossibility of achieving the ideal. The volume also contains a contextual introduction by social choice scholar Prasanta K. Pattanaik and commentaries from Joseph E. Stiglitz and Kenneth J. Arrow himself, as well as essays by Maskin, Dasgupta, and Sen outlining the mathematical proof and framework behind their assertions

Nash equilibria of games when players' preferences are quasitransitive by
Kaushik Basu(
)
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Much of game theory is founded on the assumption that individual players are endowed with preferences that can be represented by a realvalued utility function. However, in reality human preferences are often not transitive. This is especially true for the indifference relation, which can lead an individual to make a series of choices which in their totality would be viewed as erroneous by the same individual. There is a substantial literature that raises intricate questions about individual liberty and the role of government intervention in such contexts. The aim of this paper is not to go into these ethical matters but to provide a formal structure for such analysis by characterizing games where individual preferences are quasitransitive. The paper identifies a set of axioms which are sufficient for the existence of Nash equilibria in such 'games'"Abstract
