On private and efficient repeated allocation

Jia Yuan Yu Associate Professor, Concordia Institute of Information System Engineering, Concordia University, Canada

An unknown number of agents consume a common good resource in a repeated fashion. We show that if the agents control their consumptions according to a certain policy, then these consumptions converge to a socially efficient allocation. This is achieved without communicating any of the utility functions of the agents, and with very limited broadcast signals from a central authority. We present one such policy for divisible goods and one for indivisible goods.
