On stability and incentives in hierarchies
AbstractSituations where a group of individuals takes collective decisions are subject to instabilities when subgroups may form. In this paper, we analyze how a hierarchical organization avoids such instabilities, while distributing some power among the subordinates and the subgroups they may form. Incentives to reveal private information are also studied.
