This¬†paper written by James Hill and Michael Wellman presents a game-theoretic model of online tangible private goods rental. The authors’ main contribution is a novel mechanism for the situation in which the principal is independent of the owners of goods available in the market and in which goods are transferred directly between renters.¬† The authors show that it is possible to set mechanism parameters–payments and penalty functions–so that truthful reporting of the quality of goods is a Nash equilibrium.
