Non-manipulable Assignment of Individuals to Positions Revisited

Tommy Andersson and Lars-Gunnar Svensson ()

No 2006:11, Working Papers from Lund University, Department of Economics

Abstract: This paper investigates an allocation rule that fairly assigns at most one indivisible object and a monetary compensation to each agent, under the restriction that the monetary compensations do not exceed some exogenously given upper bound. A few properties of this allocation rule are stated and the main result demonstrates that the allocation rule is coalitionally strategy-proof.
