Abstract and Keywords

This article provides a brief overview of social choice. It concentrates on the interface between traditional notions of endstate justice and the more modern theme of strategic implementation. It outlines a general model of mechanism design and defines the classical notions of procedural and endstate justice in the context of that model. A survey of the extensive research of the last three decades that identify strategy-proof mechanisms in a variety of microeconomic problems is also included in the article.

Keywords: social choice, traditional notions, endstate justice, strategic implementation, mechanism design, procedural justice, microeconomic problems
