Abstract

This paper considers the question of tacit collusion in repeated auctions with independent private values. McAfee and McMillan show that the extent of collusion is limited by the availability of transfers. If no transfers are possible, the private information of bidders precludes any collusive scheme beyond bid rotation (BRS), even when the cartel has unlimited enforcement.
