Abstract

The class of Pareto-inclusive strict majority rules consists of all Pareto-inclusive p-strict majority rules, where p is greater than or equal to half and less than one. Pareto-inclusive p-strict majority rule, p greater than or equal to half and less than one, is defined by: Under Pareto-inclusive p-strict majority rule, an alternative x is considered to be socially at least as good as some other alternative y iff more than p fraction of total number of individuals do not prefer y to x and y is not Pareto-superior to x. This chapter is concerned with conditions for transitivity and quasi-transitivity under the class of Pareto-inclusive strict majority rules.
