Strategyproof and nonbossy allocation of indivisible goods and money
(2002) In Economic Theory 20(3). p.483502 Abstract
 Which strategyproof nonbossy mechanisms exist in a model with a finite number of indivisible goods (houses, jobs, positions) and a perfectly divisible good (money)? The main finding is that only a finite number of distributions of the divisible good is consistent with strategyproofness and nonbossiness. Under various additional assumptions  neutrality, individual rationality, object efficiency, weak decentralization  the distribution of the divisible good is further restricted. For instance, under neutrality the outcome of the mechanism can have only one distribution, which is hence independent of individual preferences. In this case the mechanism becomes serially dictatorial. On the other hand, individual rationality leads to a fixed... (More)
