Building upon the tools of decision and game theory acquired in Advanced Microeconomics I, the course is divided in two main sections. In the first section, General Competittive Analysis is developed both in its positive and normative dimensions. In the second section, the problem of designing efficient allocation mechanisms is studied in a general perspective. Incomplete information and incentives issues are introduced. The design of auctions and public good mechanisms is included.

The course adopts both a positive and a normative approach. It includes recent advances of the theory and aims at develop-ing the capacity to apply economic concepts to real-world problems.|

After reviewing classical demand theory, general equilibrium theory is studied at an advanced level. Informa-tional aspects will be stressed. Then mechanism design and implementation theory are introduced and applied to auctions and public good provision. The basic reference is the book by Andreu Mas-Colell, Michael Whinston, and Jerry R.
