Abstract In this note we report recent results on the problem of leading natural dynamics to good behavior in games that have both high-quality and low-quality equilibria. We show how a central agency can use a public-service advertising campaign to help "nudge" players' behavior towards a high-quality equilibrium, even if only a fraction of players pay attention. We also discuss results analyzing how well-motivated learning rules, when given additional global information about a game, can be used to effectively reach high-quality equilibria.
