Sequential Auctions of Israeli Cable Television Licenses: The Morning Effect


  • Neil Gandal

    (Tel Aviv University)


(In Israel, area cable television (CATV) licenses were auctioned sequentially. This paper empirically finds a ``morning" effect, that is, greater competition in later rounds of the auction. While three factors (interdependencies among neighboring licenses, interdependencies among all licenses, and cautious bidding in early rounds) likely contributed to the ``morning" effect, the evidence suggests that interdependencies among neighboring licenses were the primary cause.)
