Abstract

Abstract We consider the implementation problem with socially responsible agents who want to report a socially desirable outcome to a mechanism designer. We design a simple and natural mechanism in which each agent reports an outcome. We show that if there are at least two socially responsible agents, then the mechanism implements any unanimous social choice correspondence in Nash equilibria with at least three agents.
