About this product
- DescriptionSince the early 1970s, following the pioneering work of Leo Hurwicz, ecomists have been studying the relationship between socially optimal goals and private self-interest. The task was to reconcile the Utopian and Hobbesian traditions, using game theory to find ways to organize the society that are both socially optimal and incentive-compatible. The book provides a succinct and up-to-date account of this vast literature and will be welcomed by students, lecturers and anyone wishing to update their kwledge of the field.
