The class of rules that we propose and characterize can be viewed as a variant of the standard model in the literature on cost and surplus sharing. It basically has two reference points: an equal share of the loss and a weighted difference between an agent's endowment or claim and the average endowment of the individuals concerned. Our class of rules comprises some prominent sharing rules such as equal split and the proportionality principle.
