''Kemeny's rule and Slater''s rule: A binary comparison''
( 2003, Vol. 4 No.35 )
The purpose of this paper is to provide a binary comparison of two distance-based preference aggregation rules, Slater's rule and Kemeny''s rule. It will be shown that for certain lists of individual preferences the outcomes will be antagonistic in the sense that what is considered best according to one rule is considered worst according to the other rule.
