Abstract

This note points out that the proof of Theorem 1, the main theorem, in Ergin (2002) needs two corrections. We provide two counterexamples to Ergin’s proof, and then, show that the theorem holds as it is by providing an alternative proof.

Keywords: Matching, Stability, Efficiency, Acyclicity
