 About the lecture
 

Public Lecture of Nobel Laureate Eric Stark Maskin “Introduction to Mechanism Design Theory” is devoted to the basic principles of mechanism design theory, for the development of which he got a Nobel Prize in 2007.

 

Mechanism design theory can be considered as an “engineering” side of economic theory. Major theorizing in this field focuses on existence of institutions, and theorists make efforts to explain or predict economic and social outcomes created by these institutions. Economic transactions happen in various markets, within firms or other institutional organizations. Mechanism design theory provides a coherent model for analysis of the variety of institutions, or “allocation mechanisms”, focusing on problems of incentives and private information.
