Electoral System and Number of Candidates: Candidate Entry under Plurality and Majority RunoffBook chapterDamien Bol, André Blais, Jean-François Laslier et Antonin Macé, André Blais, Jean-François Laslier et Karine Van Der Straeten (Eds.), 2016-10, pp. 303-321, Springer International Publishing, 2016

We know that electoral systems have an effect on the number of competing candidates. However, a mystery remains concerning the impact of majority runoff. According to theory, the number of competing candidates should be equal (or only marginally larger) under majority runoff than under plurality. However, in real-life elections, this number is much higher under majority runoff. To provide new insights on this puzzle, we report the results of a laboratory experiment where subjects play the role of candidates in plurality and majority runoff elections. We use a candidate-only and sincere-voting model to isolate the effect of the electoral system on the decision of candidates to enter the election. We find very little difference between the two electoral systems. We thus re-affirm the mystery of the number of competing candidates under majority runoff.

Carl Menger (1840–1921)Book chapterGilles Campagnolo, Gilbert Faccarello et Heinz D. Kurz (Eds.), 2016-07, Volume 1, pp. 521-543, E. Elgar Publishing, 2016

Volume I contains original biographical profiles of many of the most important and influential economists from the seventeenth century to the present day. These inform the reader about their lives, works and impact on the further development of the discipline. The emphasis is on their lasting contributions to our understanding of the complex system known as the economy. The entries also shed light on the means and ways in which the functioning of this system can be improved and its dysfunction reduced. Each Handbook can be read individually and acts as a self-contained volume in its own right. It can be purchased separately or as part of a three-volume set.
