Endogenous budget constraints

Patrick Hummel

Mathematical Social Sciences, 2017, vol. 88, issue C, 11-15

Abstract: This paper considers a model in which a single buyer seeks to buy a continuum of objects from a continuum of sellers. The sellers specify prices at which they are willing to sell their objects to the buyer, and the buyer then decides which objects to purchase. I illustrate that the buyer has an incentive to commit to a binding budget constraint before seeking offers from the sellers.
