The theories of mechanism design and implementation provide a strategic analysis of the operation of various institutions for social decision making, with applications ranging from modeling election procedures to market design and the provision of public goods.

This paper is primarily devoted to a study of the (static) optimality properties (e.g., Pareto-optimality of the equilibria) of certain resource allocation mechanisms.

It is shown that one such mechanism (the “greed process”) is optimal in a class of economic environments much broader than the class for which perfect competition is by: Notes on optimality and feasibility of informationally decentralized allocation mechanisms / BEBR No.

It is shown that any informationally decentralized mechanism that realizes fair allocations over the class of classical pure exchange environments has a message space of dimension no smaller than the number of agents times the number of commodities.

Designing such mechanisms would of course be a trivial matter if the optimality of the resulting allocations were the only performance requirement. But as may be seen from the early debates over the feasibility of central planning in socialist economies, there are other important characteristics of mechanisms that also need to be taken into account.

This paper investigates the dimension requirements of informationally decentralized Pareto-satisfactory processes in production economies with increasing returns to scale or more general types of non-convexities.

We show that the marginal cost pricing (MCP) mechanism is informationally effcient over the class of non-convex production economies where MCP equilibrium allocations are Pareto.

A MODEL OF INTERTEMPORAL RESOURCE ALLOCATION Some of the central questions on designing a resource allocation mechanism that is informationally decentralized over time can be discussed formally in the context of a standard one-good model.

Price/ market mechanism which manipulates the allocation of resources or tries to resolve the three fundamental questions of what, how and for whom to produce. In other words, resources are allocated through changes in relative prices. Incentive Aspects of Decentralization To present these results more formally, it is convenient to switch to a model of public decision-making which subsumes the inputs (costs) of producing a public good under the more general rubric of a public decision (project).

5° Formally, this reduces the problem to that of a "costless" project, but at the expense of increasing the dimensionality. In this paper we present a new improved design for multi-object auctions and report on the results of experimental tests of that design.

We merge the better features of two extant but very di#erent auction processes, the Simultaneous Multiple Round (SMR) design used by the FCC to auction spectrum and the Adaptive User Selection Mechanism (AUSM) of Banks, Ledyard, and Porter ().

Summary. We discuss how decentralized network resource allocation problems fit within the context of mechanism design (realization theory and implementation theory), and how mechanism design can provide useful insight into the nature of decentralized network resource allocation problems.
