Young, H. Peyton, (1945-)

Equity : in theory and practice / H. Peyton Young.

Princeton, N.J. : Princeton University Press, c1994.

Abstract: Governments and institutions, perhaps even more than markets, determine who gets what in our society. They make the crucial choices about who pays the taxes, who gets into college, who gets medical care, who gets drafted, where the hazardous waste dump is sited, and how much we pay for public services. Debate about these issues inevitably centres on the question of whether the solution is "fair". In "Equity: In Theory and Practice", H. Peyton Young offers a systematic explanation of what we mean by fairness in distributing public resources and burdens, and applies the theory to actual cases. Young begins by reviewing some of the major theories of social justice, showing that none of them explains how societies resolve distributive problems in practice. He then suggests an alternative approach to analyzing fairness in concrete situations: equity, he argues, does not boil down to a single formula, but represents a balance between competing principles of need, desert, and social utility. The studies Young uses to illustrate his approach include the design of income tax schedules, priority schemes for allocating scarce medical resources, formulas for distributing political representation, and criteria for setting fees for public services. Each represents a unique blend of historical perspective, rigorous analysis, and an emphasis on practical solutions.

Moral sentiments and material interests : the foundations of cooperation in economic life / edited by Herbert Gintis ... [et al.].

Cambridge, Mass. : MIT Press, c2004.

Abstract: Presenting an overview of research in economics, anthropology, evolutionary and human biology, social psychology, and sociology, this book deals with both the theoretical foundations and the policy implications of cooperation. Presents an innovative synthesis of research in different disciplines to argue that cooperation stems not from the sterotypical selfish agent acting out of disguised self interest but from the presence of 'strong reciprocators' in a social group. The book deals both with the theoritical foundations and the policy implications.

Hodge, Jonathan K., (1980-)

The mathematics of voting and elections : a hands-on approach / Jonathan K. Hodge, Richard E. Klima.

Providence, RI : American Mathematical Society, 2005.

Mathematical world, ; v. 22

Abstract: Have you ever wondered ...why elections often produce results that seem to be displeasing to many of the voters involved? Would you be surprised to learn that a perfectly fair election can produce an outcome that literally nobody likes? When voting, we often think about the candidates or proposals in the election, but we rarely consider the procedures that we use to express our preferences and arrive at a collective decision. The Mathematics of Voting and Elections: A Hands-On Approach will help you discover answers to these and many other questions. Easily accessible to anyone interested in the subject, the book requires virtually no prior mathematical experience beyond basic arithmetic, and includes numerous examples and discussions regarding actual elections from politics and popular culture. It is recommended for researchers and advanced undergraduates interested in all areas of mathematics and is ideal for independent study.

Games in economic development / Bruce Wydick.

New York : Cambridge University Press, 2008.

Abstract: Games in Economic Development examines the roots of poverty and prosperity through the lens of elementary game theory, illustrating how patterns of human interaction can lead to vicious cycles of poverty as well as virtuous cycles of prosperity. This book shows how both social norms and carefully designed institutions can help shape the 'rules of the game', making better outcomes in a game possible for everyone involved. The book is entertaining to read, it can be accessed with little background in development economics or game theory. Its chapters explore games in natural resource use; education; coping with risk; borrowing and lending; technology adoption; governance and corruption; civil conflict; international trade; and the importance of networks, religion, and identity, illustrating concepts with numerous anecdotes from recent world events. Comes complete with an appendix, explaining the basic ideas in game theory used in the book.
