On the Asymptotic Performance of Matching Mechanisms with Afﬁrmative Actions
Afﬁrmative action policies, albeit controversial, attempt giving disadvantaged social groups preferential treatments to close the racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic gaps among different groups in our…

Improving Schools Through School Choice: A Market Design Approach
- Education, EconomicsJ. Econ. Theory
For large school districts, it is demonstrated that any stable mechanism approximately respects improvements of school quality; by contrast, the Boston and top trading cycles mechanisms fail to do so.
Effective affirmative action in school choice
The authors' simulations, which allow for correlations between student preferences and school priorities, indicate that minorities are, on average, better off with minority reserves while adverse effects on majorities are mitigated.
Marriage, honesty, and stability
- EconomicsSODA '05
It is shown that the game with complete information has an equilibrium in which a (1 - o(1)) fraction of the strategies are truthful in expectation, and in the more realistic setting of a game of incomplete information, the set of truthful strategies form a ( 1 + o (1)-approximate Bayesian-Nash equilibrium.
Matching with Couples: Stability and Incentives in Large Markets*
Accommodating couples has been a longstanding issue in the design of centralized labor market clearinghouses for doctors and psychologists, because couples view pairs of jobs as complements. A stable…

Stability in Large Matching Markets with Complementarities
- EconomicsOper. Res.
A new matching algorithm is introduced and it is shown that if the number of couples grows slower than the size of the market, a stable matching will be found with high probability, if however, the numberof couples grows at a linear rate, with constant probability not depending on the market size, no stable matching exists.
School Admissions Reform in Chicago and England: Comparing Mechanisms by Their Vulnerability to Manipulation
In Fall 2009, officials from Chicago Public Schools changed their assignment mechanism for coveted spots at selective college preparatory high schools midstream. After asking about 14,000 applicants…
On the welfare effects of affirmative actions in school choice
Recent evidence, from both academia and practice, indicates that implementing affirmative action policies in school choice problems may induce substantial welfare losses on the intended…
