New CeDEx papers

CeDEx 2016-05: Reputational Concerns in Repeated Rent-Seeking Contests

Description
Francesco Fallucchi and Elke Renner

CeDEx 2016-04: The Enforcement of Mandatory Disclosure Rules

Description
Matthias Dahm, Paula González and Nicolás Porteiro show that optimal monitoring of selectively reported information might enforce disclosure rules imperfectly, because it is determined by a trade-off between the reduction in selective reporting and the incentives to invest in information. This implies, for example, that the optimal fine might not be the largest possible fine.

CeDEx 2016-03: Dual Sourcing with Price Discovery

Description
José Alcalde and Matthias Dahm propose a new procurement procedure for dual sourcing and show that the procedure might allow to take advantage of dual sourcing and to generate lower procurement expenditures than a standard auction for sole sourcing.
