Majority Judgment

Michel Balinski

The MIT Press

This chapter focuses on the traditional model of social choice’s majority judgment methods, including Borda-majority judgment, Condorcet-majority judgment, and top-preferred-majority judgment. Borda-majority judgment method’s impartiality, resistance to manipulation, choice-compatibility, choice-monotonicity, and ability to satisfy winner-loser unanimity are taken into consideration. Gibbard-Satterthwaite impossibility theorem, an alternative to the traditional method theorems, is also discussed. Sir Francis Galton’s solution to the budget problem, which was later used by social choice theorists more as a normative criterion than a decision-making tool, is also presented.

Keywords:   social choice, Borda-majority judgment, Condorcet-majority judgment, top-preferred majority, decision-making
