Rational choice, collective decisions, and social welfare by Kōtarō Suzumura( Book )
23 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in English and held by 378 libraries worldwide
Left freely to themselves, a group of rational individuals often fail to cooperate even when the product of social cooperation is beneficial to all. Hence, the author argues, a rule of collective decision making is clearly needed that specifies how social cooperation should be organised among contributing individuals. Suzumura gives a systematic presentation of the Arrovian impossibility theorems of social choice theory, so as to describe and enumerate the various factors that are responsible for the stability of the voluntary association of free and rational individuals. Among other topics covered are an axiomatic characterisation of the concept of a rational choice, the simple majority decision rule and its extensions, the social choice implications of the concept of equity as nonenvy, the constrained majoritarian collective choice rules and the conflict between the Paretian ethics and the libertarian claims of individual rights
Choice, welfare, and development : a festschrift in honour of Amartya K. Sen by Kaushik Basu( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 334 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 )
9 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 285 libraries worldwide
This book examines one of the classical issues in theoretical welfare economics in general, and in theoretical industrial organization in particular - namely, the welfare effects of increasing competition among firms
Social choice re-examined : proceedings of the IEA conference held at Schloss Hernstein, Berndorf, near Vienna, Austria by Kōtarō Suzumura( Book )
36 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 252 libraries worldwide
Since World War II the subject of social choice has grown in many and surprising ways. The impossibility theorems have suggested many directions: mathematical characterisations of voting structures satisfying various sets of conditions, the consequences of restricting choice to certain domaines, the relation to competitive equilibrium and the core, and trade-offs among the partial satisfactions of some conditions. The links with classical and modern theories of justice and, in particular, the competing ideas of rights and utilitarianism have shown the power of formal social choice analysis in illuminating the most basic philosophical arguments about the good social life. Finally, the ideals of the just society meet with the play of self interest; social choice mechanisms can lend themselves to manipulation, and the analysis of conditions under which given ideals can be realised under self interest is a political parallel to the welfare economics of the market. The contributors to these volumes focus on these issues at the forefront of current research
Consistency, choice, and rationality by Walter Bossert( Book )
14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 248 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 )
13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 149 libraries worldwide

9 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 94 libraries worldwide
