Notions of A Priori Voting Power: Critique of Holler and WidgrÚn


  • MoshÚ Machover

    (Department of Philosophy, King's College, Strand, London, England)


These are critical remarks on Holler and WidgrÚn (1999) and in particular on Holler's Public Good Index. The central idea is a distinction between two underlying pre-formal notions of a priori voting power: power as influence over the outcome, and power as expected relative share in a payoff.
