Abstract

Theoretical analysis of the voting rules susceptibility to strategic manipulation suggests that the choice of the best rule (the less vulnerable to manipulation) is closely related to the underlying notion of equilibrium that is used. A crucial question is to know whether or not the possibility of reacting to a threat of manipulation should be taken in consideration. We investigate this question using laboratory experiments. We find empirical support for the specific notion of reaction. JEL code: C9, D72.
