Title: Group formation and governance
Authors: Renou, Ludovic
First Published: Jun-2007
Publisher: Dept. of Economics, University of Leicester
Abstract: This paper studies the impact of the governance of a group, whether be it unanimity, simple majority or qualified majority, on its size, composition, and inclination to change the status quo. Somewhat surprisingly, we show that not only unanimity might favor the formation of larger groups than majority, but also a change of status quo. This paper therefore suggests that unanimity, often blamed for the European inertia of the last two decades, was only a scapegoat.
