The Marquis de Condorcet goes to Bern


Bochsler, D (2010). The Marquis de Condorcet goes to Bern. Public Choice, 144(1-2):119-131.

Abstract

‘Condorcet cycles’ (or ‘paradoxes of cyclical majorities’) are an empirically rare phenomenon. A referendum in the Swiss canton of Bern on 28 November 2004 presents a rare occurrence. This study presents a new multi-option referendum procedure that makes Condorcet cycles visible, and it argues that in this case, the paradox might have resulted from strategic voting patterns.
