Towards Collaborative Consumption of Supply in Urban Systems
February 27, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Speaker: Roger Lloret-Batlle
This seminar explores the idea of violating FCFS by allowing users to trade in real-time the part of supply they “own” while they participate into a transportation system. This de facto ownership emanates from the space-time region which each agent lawfully controls. This topic led me to introduce by the first time in transportation literature, the fundamental economic concept of envy-freeness as a behavioral paradigm. I also have expanded this concept to the domain of dynamic problems, which I call dynamic envy-freeness, and created a new envy-minimizing criteria family, which strongly fits into the existing axiomatic body of Welfare Economics.
