On some properties of the Hoede-Bakker index

Abstract

In this paper, we analyze the decisional power index, the so called Hoede-Bakker index. This index takes the preferences of the players into account, as well as the social structure in which players may influence each other. We investigate the properties of the Hoede-Bakker index. We adapt some postulates for power indices and voting power paradoxes for the Hoede-Bakker set up. We investigate whether this decisional power index displays the adapted voting power paradoxes and whether it satisfies the adapted postulates for power indices.Hoede-Bakker index; power index; inclination vector; group decision; voting power paradoxes; postulates for power indices
