Games and Economic Behavior

A paper on efficient ways for computing solutions to incentive problems was recently submitted to Games and Economic Behavior. Here is the key paragraph from the rejection decision.

“I should say first of all that, based on the current manuscript, I think it is unlikely that this paper will eventually be appropriate for GEB. The topic is mechanism design, rather than game theory per se, and while the two are certainly related, the paper is not now of interest to a broad audience in the game theory community.”

At the GEB, decisions are made by anonymous associate editors. Therefore, any followup discussion was not possible. However, I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his valuable and clear statement that numerical methods for solving incentive problems are not of interest to the game theory community.
