Fair and group strategy-proof good allocation with money
We completely characterize the class of fair and group strategy-proof mechanisms. We consider two notions of fairness, anonymity in welfare and no-envy. Both fairness axioms, when applied with strategy-proofness, imply decision efficiency, and lead to the same class of group strategy-proof mechanisms (where the group size is restricted to two). We find that the only feasible mechanism satisfying a mild zero transfer axiom, in this class, is the Pivotal mechanism. Copyright Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2014
