Incentive compatible allocation without money

Ruggiero Cavallo
2014 ACM SIGecom Exchanges  
Mechanism design typically involves the use of monetary payments to incentivize truthful reporting of private information. But what if payments are impossible?  ...  This letter summarizes recent work on how lotteries and the threat of non-allocation can be leveraged to similar ends in single-item allocation settings with a secondary good that can serve a limited numéraire  ...  So, one might ask, how are type-B goods any different from money? Are we in fact just doing a kind of money-based mechanism design by another name?  ...

Systems-compatible incentives

Dave Levin, Neil Spring, Bobby Bhattacharjee
2009 2009 International Conference on Game Theory for Networks  
Using findings from recent work on incentive-compatible systems, we discuss several economic mechanisms and assumptions: money, punishment, and altruism.  ...  To maintain desirable system-wide properties in the presence of selfish users, designers are increasingly turning to the powerful mechanisms offered by economics and game theory.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank Vijay Gopalakrishnan, Dov Gordon, Seungjoon Lee, and Cristian Lumezanu for their insightful comments and helpful discussions.  ...

Autonomics: an autonomous and intelligent economic platform and next generation money tool [article]

Benjamin Munro, Julia McLachlan
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce a method for issuing, and redeeming a digital coin using a mechanism to create a sustainable global economy and a free market.  ...  We propose a high level network architecture for an economic system that integrates money, governance and reputation.  ...  Without the right organisational mechanism, the common good is limited to libraries, hospitals and roads etc.  ...

The Provision Point Mechanism with Reward Money

Robertas Zubrickas
2013 Social Science Research Network  
In environments without aggregate uncertainty, the provision point is always reached in equilibrium as competition for reward money and preference for the public good induce sufficient contributions.  ...  The advantages of the mechanism are also demonstrated for collective action problems.  ...  ., the problem of the commons, the mechanism fails to achieve the efficient outcome without distributing reward money.  ...

Legacy of Menger's Theory of Social Institutions

We argue that Menger's insights about the origin of social structures inspired later contributions in three main areas: theory of spontaneous order, theory of money, and theory of law.  ...  extremely significant for its development come into being without a common will directed toward establishing them?  ...  for the exchange of the goods.  ...

Money-Back Guarantees

Kevin Richter, Michael Levy, Eric Levens
2013 Seminars in Reproductive Medicine  
We reformulate the optimal mechanism design problem and show that typically the optimal mechanism o¤ers MBGs to some subset of types.  ...  The buyer's value for the good exhibits ...t risk and his type is multidimensional giving the probability of ...t as well as the value in case of ...t.  ...  In these limit cases, without resorting to an analog of F4, we can more directly analyze the optimal mechanism design problems.  ...

Social Provisioning and Financial Regulation: An Institutionalist-Minskyian Agenda for Reform

Faruk Ülgen
2015 Journal of Economic Issues  
Ambivalence of money, core role of financial mechanisms/relations in the economy but also for the existence of people imply that money and finance do not fit for private production.  ...  The identification of social provisioning as the process of provision of goods/services that market mechanisms cannot ensure is related to the definition and characteristics of public goods and commons  ...

Optimal mechanism design and money burning

Jason D. Hartline, Tim Roughgarden
2008 Proceedings of the fourtieth annual ACM symposium on Theory of computing - STOC 08  
We develop a framework for the design and analysis of money-burning mechanisms to maximize the residual surplusthe total value of the chosen outcome minus the payments required.  ...  Mechanism design is now a standard tool in computer science for aligning the incentives of self-interested agents with the objectives of a system designer.  ...  as powerful as mechanisms without money.  ...

Translating Commons-Based Peer Production Values into Metrics [chapter]

Primavera De Filippi

Instead, individuals can choose whether to work for the market (earning money) or for the commons (earning Sabirs), without having to give up one for the other.  ...  By virtue of the pricing mechanism, money can be used to evaluate the market value of a large variety of resources and price tag them into goods to be exchanged.  ...

The problem of designing a method for a pricebased mechanism for valuing environmental change is, conceptually, unsurmountable.  ...  Without money, the middlemen would have to become expert in all the goods and services they might receive in payment for certifying the quality of others.n Without money, asymmetric information about the  ...

Gift Exchange versus Monetary Exchange: Theory and Evidence

John Duffy, Daniela Puzzello
2014 The American Economic Review  
We find that welfare is higher in the model with money than without money, suggesting that money plays a role as an efficiency enhancing coordination device.  ...  We also study versions of the model without money where all equilibria involve non-monetary gift-exchange.  ...  The more substantive change in our modified experimental design is that the centralized meeting mechanism in both the money and no money treatments now involves a common, centralized trading post mechanism  ...
