Title Rational choice in a communal apartment
Author(-s) Vasilyev A.F.
Abstract I.V. Utekhin described a peculiar phenomenon which occurs in a communal apartment. It is the unwilingness of the apartment residents to jointly arrange even elementary necessities of everyday communal living. The author analyzes and explains this phenomenon to be a part of a Soviet cultural complex. This theory is criticized and an alternative explanation in the the framework of rational choice is proposed.
