The probability of inconsistencies in complex collective decisions
Many groups make decisions over multiple interconnected propositions. The "doctrinal paradox" or "discursive dilemma" shows that propositionwise majority voting can generate inconsistent collective sets of judgments, even when individual sets of judgments are all consistent. I develop a simple model for determining the probability of the paradox, given various assumptions about the probability distribution of individual sets of judgments, including impartial culture and impartial anonymous...[Show more]
