The Majoritarian Compromise in Large Societies

Arkadii Slinko


First, we dwell on the definition of the Majoritarian Compromise in the case of an odd number of alternatives. Then, assuming the Impartial Culture hypothesis we calculate the average maximum welfare achievable by the Majoritarian Compromise procedure and show that this social choice rule is asymptotically stable with
the proportion of the number of unstable profiles to the total number of profiles being in the order of $Oleft(1/sqrt{n}right)$, where $n$ is the total number of agents.
