random mechanism

ran·dom mech·a·nism

a scheme for substrate binding and product release for a multisubstrate enzyme; for a two-substrate two-product enzyme with this mechanism, either substrate can bind first and, after the reaction has taken place, either product can be the first to dissociate from the enzyme. Brain hexokinase has a random mechanism. More complex random mechanisms exist for enzymes having more than two substrates.

The assumption that Irwin is hinting at is that the public knows the true random mechanism determining an inflationary government's actions.
Thus, our model assumes that the public knows the true random mechanism determining an inflationary government's behaviour, but this is not the same as the public knowing the identity of the government as in earlier perfect foresight models.
It says nothing more than the private sector knows the true random mechanism determining the behaviour of an I-type government.
This is precluded by the consistency assumption implying that the private sector knows the true random mechanism determining the actions of an I-type.
This, of course, has reference to the random mechanisms put in place from time to time to regulate the industry in such a manner as to meet the expectations of the policyholders effectively, particularly with regard to settlement of claims and disputes.
