Topic

“Auctions for resources, and the dangers of uniform-pricing”

Abstract

Auctions with below-bid pricing (e.g., uniform-price, and ascending auctions) have remarkable theoretical properties and have been sometimes used for the allocation of natural resources. However, some practitioners are skeptical about their implementation. We present a dynamic model of collusion in multiunit auctions that explains this gap between theory and practice. To sustain collusion at the reserve price, bidders submit crank-handle bids. We illustrate how the cost of sustaining crank-handle collusion depends on the degree of below-bid pricing in the auction. Our model predicts that crank-handle collusion is easier to sustain in auctions with more below-bid pricing and when bidders are more symmetric. Evidence from auctions of fishing quota in the Faroe Islands supports our predictions.
