Freedom of Choice and Diversity of Options: Some Difficulties

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


This paper explores the possibility for a (non-preference-based) freedom ranking of opportunity sets that is sensitive to the diversity of the options. It turns out that how distances between sets and alternatives are measured is crucial to the derivation of such a ranking. Several proposals are examined, each of which is shown to lead to impossibility results.
