Maximal surplus from the pivotal mechanism: a closed form solution
The paper derives a closed form solution for the maximal surplus generated by the pivotal mechanism in the case of a binary public good. The formula may be used to compare the pivotal mechanism to other mechanisms. An illustration is provided to demonstrate how such a comparison may be made.
