On (Non-) Monotonicity of Cooperative Solutions

Yair Tauman () and Andriy Zapechelnyuk

No 13, Discussion Papers from Kyiv School of Economics

Abstract: Aggregate monotonicity of cooperative solutions is widely accepted as a desirable property, and examples where certain solution concepts (such as the nucleolus) violate this property are scarce and have no economic interpretation. We provide an example of a simple four-player game that points out at a class of economic contexts where aggregate monotonicity is not appealing.
