Sequential Auctions: Theory and Evidence from the Seattle Fur Exchange
AbstractWe develop a model that incorporates salient features of the Seattle Fur Exchange: identical lots of furs are auctioned sequentially, bids must be raised by specified increments, and the winner of a lot has the privilege of beginning the bidding on the subsequent lot. Predictions of the theory are consistent with the data. Revenue implications of the theory are also explored.
