Increasing Dominance with No Efficiency Effect

Contents:

Author Info

  • Cabral, L.

Abstract

I uncover a new force towards increasing dominance. The new effect results from the strategic choice of covariance in races. I assume that players must choose not the amount of resources to spend but how to allocate those resources. I show that the laggard has an incentive to chose a different path from the leader.
