Multidimensional screening under nonlinear costs: Limits of standard approach
Babu Nahata () and
Economics Letters, 2010, vol. 107, issue 2, 263-265
We generalize the usual screening approach and conditions for efficiency-at-the-top and acyclic property from linear to fixed-plus-separable or concave costs and multidimensional commodities. But under non-concave costs, like capacity constraints, an example shows a cycle in the solution graph. The cycle makes the standard screening solution non-implementable and approach inadequate.
