Non-dictatorial extensive social choice


Author Info

  • Erwin Ooghe


  • Luc Lauwers



Different social planners may have different opinions on the well-being of individuals under different social options (Roberts, 1980). If utilities are translation- or ratio-scale measurable, or if the social ranking might be incomplete, or if interplanner comparability is allowed; then there exist non-dictatorial aggregation rules. We propose extensions, intersections, and mixtures of the Pareto, utilitarian, leximin, Kolm-Pollak, and iso-elastic rules. Copyright Springer-Verlag Berlin/Heidelberg 2005
