A primer in social choice theory by Wulf Gaertner( Book )
30 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 433 libraries worldwide
"This introductory text explores the theory of social choice, or the analysis of collective decision making. The main aim of the book is to introduce students to the various methods of aggregating the preferences of all members of a given society into some social or collective preference. Written as a primer suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduates, this text will act as an important starting point for students grappling with the complexities of social choice theory. Rigorous yet accessible, this primer avoids the use of technical language and provides an up-to-date discussion of this rapidly developing field."--Jacket

Social choice and bargaining perspectives on distributive justice by Wulf Gaertner( Book )
12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 220 libraries worldwide
This book studies two distinct approaches to distributive justice. The firstoriginates from axiomatic social choice theory and studies positionalist aggregation functions. Profiles of individual extended orderings over alternative social states are mapped into a social ordering of these states. The informational framework of this procedure is ordinal and requires interpersonal comparisons of utility levels. The aggregation mechanism which is proposed can be characterized as a generalized ranking rule with a nonlinear weighting scheme, allowing an equity axiom to be satisfied. The second approach is rooted in axiomatic bargaining theory and uses cardinal individual utilities which are not required to be interpersonally comparable. The second path leads to a new characterization of the Gauthier solution for n persons that can suitably bedefined as a lexicographical maximin solution in relative utility gains. Again, an equity axiom proves to be useful. Both approaches are subjected to empirical investigations. In the first one, results from questionnaires are presented. In the second one, findings from laboratory experiments are discussed

Distributive justice and inequality : a selection of papers given at a conference, Berlin, May 1986 by Wulf Gaertner( Book )
15 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 137 libraries worldwide
This book contains a selection of papers which were presented at a conference on "Distributive Justice and Inequality" at the Institute for Advanced Study Berlin. Topics covered range from concepts of equity, optimal population policies and axiomatic characterizations of inequality measures and poverty orderings to distributional implications of taxation rules and game-theoretical analyses. This collection of papers is unique in that the issue of distributive justice is looked at from very different angles. The reader will find philosophical discussions on equity or optimal population size longside mathematical analyses of taxation schemes. Most of the papers contain new, hitherto unpublished results
