Instructor Rating Marketswith
We describe the design of Instructor Rating Markets in which students trade on the ratings that will be received by instructors. The markets provide useful dynamic feedback to instructors on the progress of their class, while at the same time enabling the controlled study of prediction markets where traders can affect the outcomes they are trading on.

Anarchy, Stability, and Utopia: Creating Better Matchingswith
(original version in Proceedings of the Second Symposium on Algorithmic Game Theory, 2009.)
We examine the loss in social welfare that arises from requiring matchings to be stable, the natural equilibrium concept under individual rationality. [...] Furthermore, we derive conditions for the existence of approximately stable matchings that are also close to socially optimal, demonstrating that adding small switching costs can make socially (near-)optimal matchings stable. Our analysis leads to several concomitant results of interest on the convergence of decentralized partner-switching algorithms, and on the impact of heterogeneity of tastes on social welfare.(PDF)
