Summary Sentence: Group Decisions

Full Summary: Group Decisions

We consider a decision problem where a group of individuals or a committee collectively shares the responsibility for choosing among alternative proposals for action. Individuals or committee members may have different views on the relative merit of each proposal. The problem therefore boils down to how one should aggregate the views/preferences of the committee members to arrive at a preferred decision. Our theory builds on bilateral agreement on a chosen parameter from the two individuals comprising a pair. We explore the minimal required agreements that are sufficient to specify the group utility. Potential applications are discussed.
