A market based approach to soldiers and cadet allocation

The author, Tobías Switzer USAF, recommends a market-based matching mechanism that a) restores the mathematical properties of fairness, strategy-proofness, and efficiency and b) vastly
increases cadet welfare and Army rents while maintaining quality in the Combat Arms branches.

He concludes that "The implementation of this market-based matching mechanism would be very easy to
accomplish."

Award winning Master Thesis by Tobias Switzer (thesis in English, requires knowledge of mathematics, but you can get the essence by reading the introduction, conclusion, and "translating" some of the mathematical language)
