A Critical Analysis
Elections are fundamental for the working of nowadays democracies, as such it is important to understand whether a good voting system exists. In this paper, I first analyze the traditional framework of social choice, in which individuals are asked to rank candidates. Since systems relying on the ranking of candidates do not satisfy certain desirable properties and lead to the Arrow Impossibility Theorem, I then introduce a different framework, in which individuals are asked to grade candidates instead. Within this context, I discuss advantages and drawbacks of Balinski and Laraki’s Majority Judgement.
