On the Strategic Advantage of Interdependent Preferences in Rent-Seeking Contests
We study rent-seeking contests, where the set of players contains both players with independent preferences and players with interdependent preferences. It turns out that the latter experience a strategic advantage in general two-player contests and in n-player-contests with non-increasing returns to scale technologies. Finally, we illustrate our findings for the special cases of an additively separable preference function.
