Fair bound based solidarity
AbstractHow should scholarships be distributed among the (public) higher education students? We raise thissituation as a redistribution problem. Following the approach developed in Fleurbaey (1994) andBossert (1995), redistribution should be based on the notion of solidarity and it re-allocates resourcestaking into account only agents' relevant characteristics. We also follow Luttens (2010a), whoconsiders that compensation of relevant characteristics must be based on a lower bound on whatevery individual deserves. In doing so, we use the so-called fair bound (Moulin 2002) to define anegalitarian redistribution mechanism and characterize it in terms of non-negativity, priority in lowerbound and solidarity. Finally, we apply our approach to the scholarships redistribution problem.
