Mechanism Design and Approximation
by Jason D. Hartline
Number of pages: 349
The text presents the classical theory of economic mechanism design and introduces a new theory of approximation for mechanism design. A central theme will be the tradeoff between optimality and other desirable properties such as simplicity, robustness, computational tractability, and practicality.

Optimal Regulation addresses the central issue of regulatory economics -- how to regulate firms in a way that induces them to produce and price 'optimally'. It synthesis an extensive theoretical literature on what constitutes optimality.
