It then contrasts competitive and strategic equilibrium concepts under asymmetric information. It also illustrates the dependence of information efficiency and. If information is symmetric, then in case 1 we should observe renegotiation and efficient trade.

However, as Myerson and Satterthwaite () have shown in a general mechanism-design framework, when there is two-sided asymmetric information, efficient trade is impossible. Hence, as Hall and Lazear () observe, there is no simple contract that implements.
