An important effect of taking account of such costs is that it is almost certainly no longer optimal to seek a perfectly balanced plan: in the conventional language of economics, messages should only be exchanged by agents until the marginal cost of an additional exchange of information just offsets the (expected) marginal benefit in terms of some objective function (either a sum of agents’ objectives, or some overall welfare function). 3 Decentralisation By focussing attention on the information flows between organisations in a planned economy it is possible to define informational decentralisation, and then to investigate planning mechanisms to check whether or not they possess this feature (Hurwicz, in particular, has stressed this aspect of decentralisation).

16 PAUL G. HARE however, begs a number of important questions. First, is it so clear that the market does always function as well as the argument takes for granted, especially in view of the fact that the price signals which are supposed to stimulate the desired entrepreneurial response can only be current prices? Second, just as for the Walrasian approach, there is no indication given in this theory as to how the prices come to be close to Walrasian prices for most of the time; yet it is evident that this must be the case if the dynamics of the model are to make sense, and if markets are assumed to be in reasonable short-run balance most of the time.

3 Decentralisation By focussing attention on the information flows between organisations in a planned economy it is possible to define informational decentralisation, and then to investigate planning mechanisms to check whether or not they possess this feature (Hurwicz, in particular, has stressed this aspect of decentralisation). However, this is not the only type of decentralisation that has proved to be interesting since, as we stressed above, the structure of information flows is certainly not the only characteristic that distinguishes one planning mechanism from another.
