''Allocation of costs to clean up a polluted river: an axiomatic approach''
( 2015, Vol. 35 No.2 )
This paper proposes a method to share the costs of cleaning up a polluted river among the agents located along it. This method is based on a model of pollutant transport and the polluter pays principle. We provide an axiomatic characterization for this method and investigate its relationship with both the (weighted) Shapley value and the tau-value of the corresponding cost game generated from the problem. We show that the solution of the proposed method coincides with both the weighted Shapley value and the tau-value.
Keywords: Water pollution, cost allocation, weighted Shapley value, tau-value.
