Overall, then, the idea of anonymity is rather restrictive. Definition 3: Operationality A message is operational if it refers directly to proposed actions (resource transfers); a planning mechanism is operational if all messages are operational. It follows from this last definition that messages do not directly convey internal information about any unit to other units. Without it, it is evidently necessary to impose some other restrictions on the form and dimensionality of the message space to capture the natural 40 PAUL G.
Hence it is important to specify which state activities should be regarded as planning, and which not. Also, the nature of the state itself is far from straightforward: in particular, it would be wrong to treat the state as 18 PAUL G. HARE a homogeneous, completely coherent entity with well-defined objectives. In practice, different agencies or departments deal with different aspects of economic control. Typically, for example, states in market-type economies engage in short-term macroeconomic regulation using the familiar tools of fiscal and monetary policy, and also operate a number of policies to control microeconomic behaviour.

Definition 4: Self-relevance An operational planning mechanism is self-relevant if all messages only refer to proposed actions by the sender. Definition 5: Aggregativeness An operational planning mechanism has the property of aggregativeness if the response functions for each unit depend only on the total transactions (‘trade’) proposed by other units, and not on the identity of the other traders. Given these definitions, which are restrictions on the arguments and form of the response functions in a planning mechanism, we can now define informational decentralisation in Hurwicz’ sense, as follows: Definition 6: Informational decentralisation A planning mechanism is informationally decentralised if it has the properties of privacy and anonymity; in the case of an operational procedure, the anonymity condition can be replaced by the pair of conditions, self-relevance and aggregativeness.
