Title:  Solidarity to achieve stability (joint with Oihane Gallo, Elena Inarra and Juan D. Moreno-Ternero)

Room: E22

Time: 12.30

Abstract: Agents may form coalitions. Each coalition shares its endowment among its agents by applying a sharing rule. The sharing rule induces a coalition formation problem by assuming that agents rank coalitions according to the allocation they obtain in the corresponding sharing problem. We characterize the sharing rules that induce a class of stable coalition formation problems as those that satisfy a natural axiom that formalizes the principle of solidarity. Thus, solidarity becomes a sufficient condition to achieve stability.
