Pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1951, questo libro di Arrow rappresenta la prima trattazione completa e rigorosa della "teoria delle scelte sociali". Fino ad allora, infatti, predominava l'idea che gli economisti dovessero occuparsi solo dell'economia "positiva", secondo l'impostazione delle scienze sperimentali. Arrow apre una nuova frontiera, mostrando come essi debbano non solo prevedere e descrivere ciò che accade, ma anche interrogarsi su come la volontà dei singoli individui giunga a determinare i comportamenti collettivi e le scelte sociali.

Arrow made his PhD thesis into this book in 1951. It remains one of the most remarkable works in the strange field of economics in the twentieth century. This is the book that launched a thousand puzzled explanations by troubled neo-classical economists in the years following its publication. The bo Leggi tutto
This book launched the modern study of social choice theory with its famous proof of the General Possibility Theorem, better known as "Arrow's Impossibility Theorem." Arrow's theorem shows the impossibility of a class of social welfare functions (roughly, rules that generates a social ranking of soc Leggi tutto

Within the scope of todays orthodoxy Arrows work (I read a 3rd printing of the 2nd Edition) seems ontologically reductive but it is more than that. Genuine discourse by a generation of economists to put their
Great and pioneering presentation on the core problem of social choice. Arrow presented here a dilemma, that has not yet been solved without relaxing some of the requirements presented.
Dear KJA Thanks for giving me a field to work in.
"Ken evidently knew more on virtually any subject than any of the rest of us. There was a story at Harvard that a group of junior faculty once concocted a plan by which they could finally appear to outshine their erudite senior colleague. They read up on the most arcane topic they could think of: th Leggi tutto
Classic, lots of set theory and proofs. Firm challenge to the expectation that democratic decision-making can create the best social outcomes without a universally shared set of aims, or an imposed set of aims. Clear writing between the maths.
One of the foundations of decision theory and choice. Hear Arrow speak once when I was in graduate school, some years before he won the Nobel Prize in economics.
Magnificent book. Arrow's theorem is a phenomenal celebration of the human spirit.
