A short proof of the Bulow-Klemperer auctions vs. negotiations result
Bulow and Klemperer  have provided an upper bound on the value of bargaining power for a seller of an indivisible object. Specifically, negotiating optimally with N buyers yields lower revenue than an English auction with N + 1 buyers. In this paper, a short and intuitive proof of this result is presented.
