Abstract

In a companion paper [Man, P. and Takayama, S., 2013 "A Unifying Impossibility Theorem", Economic Theory, forthcoming], we show that many classical impossibility theorems follow from three simple and intuitive axioms on the social choice correspondence when the set of social alternatives is finite. This supplementary note extends this result to the case where the set of social alternatives is a compact metric space.
