We consider how many bits need to be exchanged to implement a given decision rule when the mechanism must be ex post or Bayesian incentive compatible. For ex post incentive compatibility, the communication protocol must reveal enough information to calculate monetary transfers to the agents to motivate them to be truthful (agents' payoffs are assum...

... Van Zandt (2007) shows the difference between EPIC and DSIC in dynamic mechanisms under private values. Fadel and Segal (2009) examine the communication costs for determining an allocation and calculating the monetary transfer that induces incentive compatibility. They show that additional cost exists for calculating EPIC monetary transfers other than the communication cost of finding the desirable allocation. ...
