The Condorcet Jury Theorem, Free Speech, and Correlated Votes
Preview not available

Abstract

The Condorcet jury theorem provides a theoretical basis for democracy. Unfortunately, the theorem is known to hold only under the unrealistic assumption that votes are independent. This paper generalizes the theorem to correlated votes. The generalized theorem provides an analytical basis for free speech. Numerical examples seek to illustrate the main results.
