On the core of a cost allocation problem under asymmetric information

Author

  • Yusuke Kamishiro

Abstract

We study a cost allocation problem under asymmetric information, and show that the ex ante incentive compatible core is non-empty. We also obtain a non-emptiness result for the incentive compatible coarse core, which is one concept of an interim core.
