Abstract : Internet is a large-scale and highly competitive economic ecosystem. In order to make fair decisions, while preventing the economic actors from manipulating the natural outcome of the decision process, game theory is a natural framework, and voting systems represent an interesting alternative that, to our knowledge, has not yet being considered. They allow competing entities to decide among different options. In this paper, we investigate their use for end-to-end path selection in multi-operator networks, analyzing their manipulability by tactical voting and their economic efficiency.We show that Instant Runoff Voting is much more efficient and resistant to tactical voting than the natural system which tries to get the economic optimum.
