Abstract : Much of the recent literature on the theory of games has focused on the contributions of that subject to problems of an economic nature. Several of these recent papers have attempted to bring together and compare a number of solution concepts relevant to a particular class of economic games. It is the primary purpose of this paper to present and elaborate upon some of the game-theoretic solution concepts applicable to n-person majority rule games. As such, this exposition should be especially useful to public-sector economists, political scientists, and other social scientists who wish to understand the contributions of mathematical game theory to this class of problems.
