Hold-up in vertical hierarchies with adverse selection

Author

  • Palermo, Alberto

Abstract

This paper studies bargaining with hold-up in presence of adverse selection and endogenous type distribution. With limited liability for the agent, quantities of first best are not socially optimal. The allocation of bargaining power is never completely in favor of one party.
