NTU-Bankruptcy Problems: Consistency and the Relative Adjustment Principle

B. Dietzenbacher, Peter Borm, M.A. Estevez Fernandez

Research output: Working paper / PreprintWorking paperAcademic


This paper axiomatically studies bankruptcy problems with nontransferable utility by adequately generalizing and analyzing properties for bankruptcy rules. In particular, we discuss several consistency notions and introduce the class of parametric bankruptcy rules. Moreover, we introduce the class of adjusted bankruptcy rules and study the relative adjustment principle based on relative symmetry, truncation invariance, and minimal rights first.
