Interview hoarding

THEORETICAL ECONOMICS, 18(2), 503–527.

By: V. Manjunath* & T. Morrill n

author keywords: NRMP; deferred acceptance; interviews; hoarding; C78; D47; J44
TL;DR: It is shown analytically that if doctors can accept more interviews, but hospitals do not increase the number of interviews they offer, then no doctor who would have matched in the setting with more limited interviews is better off and many doctors are potentially harmed.

By: U. Dur n & T. Morrill n

author keywords: Top trading cycles; School choice; Competitive equilibria

Petty Envy When Assigning Objects

EC'16: PROCEEDINGS OF THE 2016 ACM CONFERENCE ON ECONOMICS AND COMPUTATION, pp. 761–761.

By: T. Morrill n

author keywords: School Assignment; Matching Theory; Fairness; Efficiency Adjusted Deferred Acceptance Algorithm
TL;DR: It is proved that a fair set of assignments has the same properties as the set of stable matches: the Lattice Theorem, Decomposition Lemma, and Rural Hospital Theorem all hold. (via Semantic Scholar)

Making just school assignments

GAMES AND ECONOMIC BEHAVIOR, 92, 18–27.

By: T. Morrill n

author keywords: Top trading cycles; School choice; Assignment
TL;DR: It is proved that Top Trading Cycles is the unique mechanism that is strategyproof, efficient, and just and it is demonstrated that a strictly stronger notion of fairness than justness is either unachievable by a strategyproof and efficient mechanism or it is only achievable by TTC.
