Both buyers and sellers rank products of different quality in the same way, but only the sellers can observe the quality of each unit of the good they sell. Buyers can observe at most the distribution of the quality of the goods previously sold. Without some device for the buyers to identify good products, bad products will always be sold with the good products. Such a market illustrates the problem of adverse selection.

These results certainly illuminate the infinite horizon model with overlapping generations of consumers and producers, but the possibility of efficient or optimal resource allocation by decentralized means is not different from that in the one-good Malinvaud model. Recently, Hurwicz and Majumdar in an unpublished manuscript dated 1983, and later Hurwicz and Weinberger (1984), have addressed this issue directly, building on the approach of mechanism theory. Hurwicz and Majumdar have studied the problem of efficiency in a model with an infinite number of periods.
