Abstract

We slightly modify the Ausubel-Milgrom [3] Proxy Auction byadding a final stage which possibly induces some discounts relativeto the final accepted bids of the 'original' auction. The proxy auctionwith final discounts is such that the outcome is a point in the bidderoptimal frontier of the Core. Then truthful reporting is an equilibriumif and only if the Vickrey outcome is in the Core, a condition that isnecessary but not sufficient in the original version of the proxy auctionas illustrated by an example.
