Despite the popularity of the Nash solution in the economic literature mentioned above Skyrms continues: Perhaps philosophers who have spent so much time discussing the utilitarian and Kalai-Smorodinsky schemes should pay a little more attention to the Nash bargaining solution. Even if not a philosopher, in the present article I followed this advice by trying to find traces of fairness in different representations of the Nash solution available in the literature.

In such a game, note that i’s gain to deviating from the strategy profile sN by choosing si instead is given by vi (si , s−i ) − vi (si , s−i ) = ρi [v ∗ (si , s−i ) − v ∗ (si , s−i )]. In the special case when ρi = 1 for all i ∈ N , this implies that G is a potential game, with v ∗ as the potential function. Because of this restriction on the constants ρi , however, this definition due to Monderer and Shapley (1996) involves implicit interpersonal comparisons. See Ui (2000) in particular for further discussion of potential games.

Item (iii) expresses the fact that the lottery choice correspondence defined by the mapping F → → CL (F, v) on the lottery domain FL (X) must be invariant under strictly increasing affine transformations of the utility function v. Such transformations replace v by any member of the same cardinal equivalence class. 34 PETER J. HAMMOND 3. 1. ARROW SOCIAL WELFARE FUNCTIONS Let R(X) denote the set of preference orderings on X.
