Example text

Hence, y is not on top of the dictator’s list and so is not a social choice. PROPOSITION 9. Condorcet’s method satisfies monotonicity. PROOF. 5. Positive Results—Proofs 17 preference lists yielding x as a social choice. Now assume that someone exchanges x’s position with that of the alternative directly above x on his or her list. We want to show that x is still a social choice. But the change in the single list described above affects only the one-onone contest between x and the alternative with which it was switched.

PROOF. Assume the social choice procedure being used is a dictatorship and assume that we have an arbitrary sequence of preference lists yielding x as a winner and y as a nonwinner. Thus, x is on top of the dictator’s list. Now suppose that preference lists are changed but no one changes his or her mind about whether x is preferred to y or y to x. We want to show that y is not now among the social choices, which simply means that y is not now on top of the dictator’s list. But the dictator’s list still has x over y (although x may no longer be on top).

Thus, because our procedure is assumed to satisfy independence of irrelevant alternatives, and because we had a as a winner and b as a nonwinner in the profile with which we began the proof of the claim, we can conclude that b is still a nonwinner when the procedure is applied to profile (1). This proves the claim. CLAIM 3. The alternative c is a nonwinner. PROOF. We leave this for the reader (see Exercise 40). The above three claims show that when our procedure is confronted with the voting paradox profile, it produces no winner.
