Older comments[edit]

I think this page is too technical. It starts off OK, but I can't see a non-specialist understanding the sections toward the end, especially that on Sen. I corrected a few grammatical and punctuation mistakes while I read it.

I changed the wording of the first sentence to reflect terminology more commonly used by game theorists. This edit meant changing "individual values" to "individual preferences" and "collective choice" to "collective preferences". --Vince.Buffalo 05:31, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

I agree; please bring the language down to the level of the newcomer to the idea. It seems more in keeping with the wiki idea to make the information actually accessible.
