AbstractRecent world events have cast a spotlight on what role, if any, discriminatory screening should play in aircraft security. This paper argues that if observable characteristics indicate differing probabilities of committing acts of terrorism, then following a non-discriminatory screening policy that fails to utilize those observable characteristics may be pareto-dominated by a screening policy that discriminates based on observable characteristics, even if agents are risk-neutral.
