The Shapley Value as Aircraft Landing Fees--Revisited


  • Pradeep Dubey

    (Yale University)


We examine the axiomatic basis of the Shapley value when applied to the problem of allocating the cost of a runway among different-sized users. Our approach is to begin with a model of airport-problems and then to list---within the model---certain natural properties which an allocation ought to satisfy. It is shown that these lead uniquely to the Shapley value.
