Management Science, 44:11311147, 1998. 13. T. Sandholm. Making markets and democracy work: A story of incentives and computing. In Proceedings of the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI), pages 16491671, 2003. ch Abstract. Many practical scenarios involve solving a social choice problem: a group of self-interested agents have to agree on an outcome that best fits their combined preferences. We assume that each outcome presents a certain utility to an agent and that the best outcome is the one that maximizes the sum of these utilities.

This is the case in particular for the Clarke tax ([5]), the most well-known mechanism for dealing with selfinterest in social choice. Since economists have shown many impossibility results (for example, [7,10]) that prove that it is impossible to combine incentive-compatibility, optimality and budget balance, it is unlikely that this can be overcome in general. This paper has presented a mechanism that chooses a solution that is optimal for all but a group of excluded agents. In this way, any tax or auction scheme can be made budget-balanced by returning the surplus to the excluded agents.

Parkes A benefit for sellers as demonstrated through simulation is that the options-based protocol maintains a market even with buyers with complementary values for goods. In comparison, we show that a traditional market can fail, because it quickly becomes difficult for buyers to participate in the market without becoming exposed to partial bundles and losing money. Thus, the options-based scheme has appeal to both buyers and sellers. 1 Related Work The composability problem was previously observed in Wellman & Wurman [20], in the context of a discussion about the boundaries that must inevitably exist between mechanisms.
