A new analysis of a simple model of fair allocation

  • Moreno-Ternero, Juan D.

In a recent article, Fragnelli and Gagliardo [Fragnelli, V., Gagliardo, S., (2012). Cooperative models for allocating an object. Economics Letters 117, 227–229] propose several procedures to solve a basic problem of fair allocation. We scrutinize their proposal and contextualize it into recent developments of the literature on bankruptcy problems. Our analysis supports two of the procedures they propose; namely, the Shapley and Talmud rules.
