Abstract

We consider a mechanism design problem for the provision of a binary excludable public good. We characterize the augmented serial rules [Ohseto (2005)] by strategy-proofness, envy-freeness, and access independence. This result is the positive answer to the first question left by Ohseto (2005). We also show that there exists a rule satisfying strategy-proofness, symmetry, access independence, and nonbossiness, other than the augmented serial rules. This result is the negative answer to the second question left by Ohseto (2005).
