Economics at your fingertips  

A formal model of firm boundaries and haggling

Yusuke Mori

Economics Letters, 2017, vol. 156, issue C, 15-17

Abstract: This study provides a formal model of Williamson’s haggling theory in which transacting parties engage in ex post contract renegotiation. We show that integration can economize bargaining costs but suffers from too much third-party arbitration (i.e., fails in selective intervention).
