07261_ExecutiveSummary.1243.pdf (0.02 MB)


The problem of fair division – dividing goods or "bads" (e.g., costs) among entities
in an impartial and equitable way – is one of the most important problems that society
faces. A Google search on the phrase "fair allocation" returns over 100K links, referring
to the division of sports tickets, health resources, computer networking resources, voting
power, intellectual property licenses, costs of environmental improvements, etc.
