Objective: It has been established in the literature that workers within public organisations are intrinsically motivated. This paper is an empirical study of the healthcare sector using methods of qualitative analysis research, which aims to answer the following hypotheses: 1) doctors are intrinsically motivated; 2) economic incentives and contro...
Article
This essay deals with the notion and content of freedom of choice proposing a new set up and a new family of measures for this concept which is, indeed, an ethical value of paramount importance in a well ordered and open society. Following some ideas of John Stuart Mill, we propose that freedom of choice has to be understood not in a single stage o...
Article
This paper explores the introduction of a variable critical-level in a variable population context, We focus the attention on the Critical- Level Leximin criterion, a social evaluation procedure which compares two social states as follows: (i) It reproduces the Leximin criterion when applied to vectors of identical dimension and (ii) otherwise, it...
Article
Using a common framework, we consider the two existing extensions of the leximax criterion to infinite environments [Arlegi, R., Besada, M., Nieto, J., Vázquez, C., 2005. Freedom of choice: the leximax criterion in the infinite case. Mathematical Social Sciences 49, 1–15; Ballester, M., De Miguel, J.R., 2003. Extending an order to the power set: th...
Article
We study possible rankings of opportunity profiles. An opportunity profile is a list of opportunity sets, one for each agent in the society. We compare profiles on the basis of the notion of “equality of opportunities”. Our main results show the necessary and sufficient conditions for this comparison to be made using exclusively the information pro...
Article
Many recent works have investigated the problem of extending a preference over a set of alternatives to its power set, in an attempt to provide a formal representation of the notion of freedom of choice. In general, results are limited to the finite case, which excludes, for instance, the case of economic environments. This paper deals with the pos...
Article
Using a common framework, we consider the two existing extensions of the leximax criterion to infinite environments (Arlegi et al. (2005) and Ballester and De Miguel (2003)), and show that, though the respective definitions of the rules and their axiomatic characterizations appear to differ considerably, they actually propose the same extension of...
Article
Existing research applying the Personal Wellbeing Index (PWI) in China is restricted to urban and rural samples. There are no studies for Chinese off-farm migrants. The specific aims of this study are (a) ascertain whether Chinese off-farm are satisfied with their lives; (b) investigate the equivalence of the PWI in terms of its psychometric proper...
Article
The problem of extending a preference relation on a set to its power set is considered. We interpret the classical Indirect Utility Criterion as the extreme opposite, in terms of freedom of choice considerations, of the well-known Cardinality-based Criterion introduced by Pattanaik and Xu, 1990. This paper proposes axiomatic characterizations for s...
Article
Sometimes individual preferences are uncertain or vague, which leads individuals to value the chance to maintain more opportunities to choose from. This decisional phenomenon is termed preference for flexibility in the related literature. In this paper we describe the notion of preference for flexibility by means of an axiomatic characterization of...
Article
We describe a criterion to evaluate subsets of a finite set of alternatives which are considered as opportunity sets. The axioms for set comparison are motivated within the preference for flexibility framework. We assume the preference over the universal set of alternatives to be made of two disjoint binary relations. The result is the axiomatic ch...

Many recent works have investigated the question of extending a preference over a set of alternatives to its power set, as a way to provide a formal representation of the notion of freedom of choice. In general, the results are limited to the nite case, which excludes the case of economic environments. This paper deals with the possibility of exten...
Article
This paper explores the introduction of a variable critical-level in a variable population context. We focus the attention on the "Critical- Level Egalitarian Ruleî, a social evaluation procedure which compares two social states as follows: (i) It reproduces the leximin criterion when applied to vectors of identical dimension and (ii) otherwise, it...

In this paper we study possible rankings of opportunity profiles. An opportunity profile is a list of sets of alternative opportunities, one set for each agent in the society. We compare such opportunity profiles on the basis of the notion of "equality of opportunities". Our main results show the necessary and sufficient conditions for this compari...
Article
This paper examines optimal redistribution in a model with high and low-skilled individuals with heterogeneous tastes for labor, that either work or not. With such double heterogeneity, traditional Welfarist criteria including Utilitarianism fail to take the compensation-responsibility trade-off into account. As a response, several other criteria h...

Este trabajo tiene por objeto analizar el problema de la distribucion interregional de dos fondos de desarrollo: El FCI y el FEDER. Ambos instrumentos, ademas de satisfacer la vocacion compensadora de la politica regional, han de ser repartidos de modo que se tiendan a igualar las oportunidades de desarrollo de las distintas regiones. Se identifica...
Article
We study two interesting properties of distribution problems. First, stability of solutions when the number of agents changes. Second, a consistency requirement when the number of goods changes. We use these properties to obtain a characterization of the leximin solution.
Article
In this paper we study fair division problems with the special feature that there exists only one transferable good that everyone likes. This good will be used to compensate some individuals for their differences in other non-transferable resources (like talents or handicaps). In this context we test the traditional no-envy solution and we verify t...

In this paper we study several methods of ranking profiles ofopportunity sets by taking as a primary notion equality of opportunity,undestood as equality of choice sets. Each of these social decision ruleslooks first at the size of the common opportunity set available to allmembers of the society. If this is not decisive, additional criteria areuse...
Article
A. Rubinstein's similarity-relation approach to decision making under uncertainty is extended by introducing a new concept of correlated similarity relations. It is shown that every expected utility preference is consistent with the -difference similarity relation on the prize space and some correlated similarity relations on the probability space,...

El objetivo de este trabajo es investigar las nociones de equidad y justicia distributiva de la literatura teórica de la Economía del Bienestar y de la distribución y su interpretación geográfica de recursos financieros para la sanidad en España con el fin de elaborar propuestas alternativas de interpretación de los criterios de asignación previsto...
Article
This paper considers solutions to distribution problems defined on economic environments. It shows that there is a unique resource-egalitarian and symmetric solution that proposes always Pareto optimal allocations and satisfies Inidivual Restricted Monotonicity; this property requires the poor people of the society to be strictly better-off when so...
Article
A pure distribution problem when individual utilities depend on relative consumption has been treated by Villar (1988) in an earlier issue of this Journal. One of his main results is that, for any bundle of goods to be divided, there exists a Pareto-optimal egalitarian allocation. In this note we show that there are such distribution problems for w...
Article
We deal with the approach, initiated by Rubinstein, which assumes that people, when evaluating pairs of lotteries, use similarity relations. We interpret these relations as a way of modelling the imperfect powers of discrimination of the human mind and study the relationship between preferences and similarities. The class of both preferences and si...
