Social Choice and Voting Models (MECS 466-0)

I am teaching this class in Spring 2013. The course focuses on collective decision-making, both from theoretical and more applied view. We will start with classical results from Social Choice theory. We will then look at strategic behavior in collective decision-making: elections, voting in committees, agenda selection and legislative bargaining. We will study both preference aggregation and information aggregation in voting, as well as theories of participation and turnout. Finally, we will apply these results to issues like voting on voters, dynamics of political institutions, and coordination games.
