The Dissolution of Eric Maskin
"Because mechanism designers do not generally know which outcomes are optimal in advance, they have to proceed more indirectly than simply prescribing outcomes by fiat; in particular, the mechanisms designed must generate the information needed as they are executed."
BAUDRILLARD—from Eric Maskin's Nobel Prize Lecture
My 19th century hummingbird
probably gathered the balance of Kafka,
and a sack race.
Upon the accumulation of all three
the guest will call you
but my hummingbird will die.
Kafka will become a bow hunter.
A miracle will be called a shower of pink.
And a sack race is a sack race.
But how did we become this way?
