Splitting the baby in two: solving Solomon's dilemma with boundedly rational agents

  • Giovanni Ponti
Orignal Paper


We study the dynamic implementation of the first-best forKing Solomon's Dilemma, on the assumption that boundedly rational players find their way to equilibrium using monotonic evolutionary dynamics. We find that all the mechanisms proposed by the literature fail to implement the first best dynamically and provide an alternative solution.
