Abstract

This paper studies bankruptcy problems with nontransferable utility as a generalization of bankruptcy problems with monetary estate and claims. Following the theory on TU-bankruptcy, we introduce a duality notion for NTU-bankruptcy rules and derive several axiomatic characterizations of the proportional rule and the constrained relative equal awards rule.
