Welcome to Carmen Pasca's Home Page


I am a docente at LUISS Guido Carlo in Rome. You can e-mail me via this link.


In the academic year 2010-2011 I am teaching with John Hey the course Social Choice - an elective available to all students at LUISS. In 2009-2010, I also taught that course and I was Assistent on John Hey's Microeconomics course.



My research is focussed on Social Choice theory. My papers include: (1) Inferring Social Preferences Over Income Distributions Through Axioms designed to test directly test the axioms of theories of income inequality; (2) , "On Choosing a Constitution (at least the part relating to the distribution of income) (with John Hey), now forthcoming in Applied Economics Letters, (3) "Are Revealed Intentions Possible?", Review of Economics and Business Studies, 2010, vol 3 no 1, 73-92, (4) "Georges-Louis Leclerc de Buffon's 'Essays on Moral Arithmetic", (with Tibor Neugabauer and John Hey) in The Selten School of Behavioral Economics, edited by Ockenfels A and Sadrieh A, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2010. I am currently working on a second experiment on responsibility luck and effort, inspired by Marc Fleurbaey's book Fairness, Responsibility and Welfare , financed by a Super Pump Priming Grant from the University of York. This is joint work with John Bone and John Hey.

I have presented papers at the 2009 Florence Behavioural and Experimental Economics Workshop and at the 50th Riunione Scientifica Annuale della SocietÓ Italiana Degli Economisti. I have also presented a workshop at LUISS. I have also presented papers at the FUR (Foundations of Utility and Risk Theory) XIV conference at the University of Newcastle in June, and at the ESA (Economic Science Association) World Meeting in Copenhagen in July 2010.
