Abstract

We develop a model of common agency with complete information and general preferences with non-transferable utility, and prove that the principals'Nash equilibrium in truthful strategies implements an efficient action. We apply this theory to construct a positive model of public finance, where organized special interests acan lobby the government for consumer and producer taxes or subsidies and targeted lump-sum taxes or transfers.
