Algorithmic Fairness in Mortgage Lending: from Absolute Conditions to Relational Trade-offs

Michelle Seng Ah Lee, Luciano Floridi
2020 Minds and Machines  
We introduce a new approach that considers fairness-not as a binary, absolute mathematical condition-but rather, as a relational notion in comparison to alternative decisionmaking processes.  ...  Each of these notions is often presented as a one-size-fits-all, absolute condition; however, in reality, the practical and ethical trade-offs are unavoidable and more complex.  ...  The US mortgage data are used to demonstrate a new methodology that views fairness as a trade-off of objectives-not as an absolute mathematical condition-but in relation to an alternative decisionmaking  ...

The Attractions and Perils of Flexible Mortgage Lending

Mark J. Garmaise
2013 The Review of financial studies  
Abstract A mortgage program that offered borrowers greater flexibility in the timing of repayments increased a bank's volume by over 35%. Loans in the program exhibited superior performance.  ...  Despite this, a regression discontinuity analysis shows that the causal impact of offering flexibility was to attract borrowers to the bank who experienced quadruple the average delinquency rate.  ...  Nonetheless, in setting the rate premium on Flexible loans, the bank did likely face a trade off between profitability per mortgage and volume. 5 4 As an example, consider a Flexible mortgage of $369,550  ...

The Misregulation of Person-to-Person Lending

Andrew Verstein
2011 Social Science Research Network  
Technological and financial innovation allows person-to-person ("P2P") lending to connect lenders and borrowers in inspiring ways never before imagined. However, all is not well with P2P lending.  ...  The SEC's misregulation of P2P lending provides an opportunity to theorize about regulation in a rapidly disintermediating world.  ...  prohibition against off-market trading.  ...

Restrictions on Credit: A Public Policy Analysis of Payday Lending

Petru Stelian Stoianovici, Michael T. Maloney
2008 Social Science Research Network  
I capture the intensity of the payday lending activity in a state by the number of payday lending stores.  ...  Using state level data between 1990 and 2006, I find no empirical evidence that payday lending leads to more bankruptcy filings, which casts some doubt on the debt trap argument against payday lending.  ...  Restrictions on payday lending could stop or discourage people in this group from engaging in voluntary trade, and could force them to choose a less preferred alternative (presumably more costly). b) It  ...

Formalising trade-offs beyond algorithmic fairness: lessons from ethical philosophy and welfare economics

Michelle Seng Ah Lee, Luciano Floridi, Jatinder Singh
2021 AI and Ethics  
In this paper, we derive lessons from ethical philosophy and welfare economics as they relate to the contextual factors relevant for fairness.  ...  Scholars have responded by introducing numerous mathematical definitions of fairness to test the algorithm, many of which are in conflict with one another.  ...  In addition, fairness should not be considered in isolation from the related ethical goals.  ...
