Yet for some other benefit profiles, the majority will be supporting the wrong (inefficient) outcome: two instances are (800, 600, 350, 350, 300), where the majority opposes a surplus-generating project, and (600, 500, 450, 150,100), where the majority supports a surplus-losing project. We can adapt the formal principle of justice in several ways so as to make it compatible with cooperation by direct agreement.

That a binary rule by majority is just and a dictatorial rule is efficient is not likely to restore his optimism. In contexts of resource allocation (such as fair division or cost sharing), the quest for the class of all strategy-proof mechanisms is still a long way from its goal. The most interesting characterization results generally combine strategy-proofness with the anonymity property (jus­ tice a priori) and/or with efficiency of the outcome, thus dropping requirements ii and iv from the wish list—although in some miraculous cases, these two properties follow automatically.

Total profit to the cartel is only Σ, M1 = 460 (in thousands of dollars), or an average per-capita profit of $28,750. Contrast this with the profit to a cartel efficiently coordinating its contributions (and enforcing payment by all firms). 19 Inefficiency of the equilibrium outcome in decentralized behavior will be a central theme throughout Chapter 6 (generalizing, among other things, the tragedy of the commons example and the voluntary contribu­ tion model). 5, namely, a severe multiplicity of possible equilibrium outcomes.
