On properties of division rules lifted by bilateral consistency

Toru Hokari and William Thomson

Journal of Mathematical Economics, 2008, vol. 44, issue 11, 1057-1071

Abstract: We consider the problem of adjudicating conflicting claims in the context of a variable population. A property of rules is "lifted" if whenever a rule satisfies it in the two-claimant case, and the rule is bilaterally consistent, it satisfies it for any number of claimants. We identify a number of properties that are lifted, such as equal treatment of equals, resource monotonicity, composition down and composition up, and show that continuity, anonymity and self-duality are not lifted. However, each of these three properties is lifted if the rule is resource monotonic.
