Behavioral aspects of implementation theory

Author

Listed:
  • Matsushima, Hitoshi

Abstract

We incorporate behavioral economics into implementation theory, where each agent dislikes telling a white lie. By using a single detail-free mechanism, any alternative can be uniquely implemented as long as the agents regard this alternative as being socially desirable.
