Bugs in the proofs of revelation principle

Haoyang Wu ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: In the field of mechanism design, the revelation principle has been known for decades. Myerson, Mas-Colell, Whinston and Green gave formal proofs of the revelation principle. However, in this paper, we argue that there are serious bugs hidden in their proofs.
