Programme

SIRE Workshop Mechanism Design June 2016

Mechanism design is the modern economic analysis of institutions and markets. It has changed the way economists think about optimal institutions when authorities are unaware of individual preferences. In the mechanism design literature, the focus is on designing optimal mechanisms. The prominently successful cases are auction and matching, such as auction houses, labor market for medical interns and school admissions.
