On the equivalence of Bayesian and dominant strategy implementation: the case of non-linear utilities


Kushnir, Alexey; Shuo, Liu (2015). On the equivalence of Bayesian and dominant strategy implementation: the case of non-linear utilities. Working paper series / Department of Economics 212, University of Zurich.

Abstract

We extend the equivalence between Bayesian and dominant strategy implementation established by Gershkov et al. (Econometrica, 2013) to environments with non-linear utilities satisfying the average single-crossing property and the convex-valued assumption. The new equivalence result produces novel implications to the literature on the principal-agent problem with allocative externalities, environmental mechanism design, and public good provision.
