Independence systems in gross-substitute valuations
Economics Letters, 2018, vol. 173, issue C, 135-137
Objects may exhibit substitutabilities, complementarities as well as independencies for agents. In this paper we show that under the Kelso–Crawfordgross substitutes condition, the sets of mutual independent objects form a matroid. Hence the structure of independent objects under the gross substitutes condition has much in common with the independence system of a graph or a vector space.
