The Nash-Bargaining solution for public sector pricing problems
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper we study some issues in positive second-best theory, specifically the theory of optimal pricing of private goods produced by public firms: i.e, firms whose objective departs from profit maximization. The approach in this paper differs from earlier analysis of the so-called Ramsey pricing problem, in that we embed our problem in a bargaining theory framework.
