Example text

Since this plan may not be feasible as it stands, Hurwicz also introduces a realisation function, a = π(b), which appears to be his sole concession to the problems of plan implementation. Following Hurwicz, these last two functions can be combined to give a single outcome function, a = ø (m T). Notice that this approach is careful not to make prior assumptions about the content of the various messages exchanged between the agents; they could be prices, possible allocations, requests for 34 PAUL G.

In addition, in its most general formulation the above equations could be applied to any form of planning hierarchy, though for all but the simplest of organisational structures this would involve different units sending different types of message. As a descriptive device, therefore, Hurwicz’ approach is quite powerful and flexible. Unfortunately, Hurwicz’ formulation has some important deficiencies, to do with the economy’s organisational structure, problems of incentives within the economy, the unsatisfactory treatment of plan implementation, and the issues of imperfect information, uncertainty and learning; finally, there is the important matter of the resources absorbed in operating any particular planning mechanism, which in some of the recent literature would come under the heading of transactions costs.

The classification set out here is conceptually quite close to Kornai’s distinction between so-called real and control units, with only the former engaging in production. Naturally, in terms of earlier notation, 28 PAUL G. HARE H u F u M = {1 , 2 . . , n} , and we assume for convenience that the three sets are disjoint. The structure of the relation S determines the nature of the economic management system being analysed. For households, assumed to be price-takers, and possibly also subject to some rationing, it is to be expected that: i S h for some i ε F or M , and for all h ; and that h S i for i ε F or M is impossible.
