Equilibrium Contingent Compensation in Contests with Delegation
Kyung Hwan Baik
Southern Economic Journal, 2007, vol. 73, issue 4, 986–1002
We consider two-player contests in which each player hires a delegate who expends his effort to win a prize on the player's behalf. Endogenizing delegation contracts, we focus on the equilibrium contracts between the players and their delegates. We first show that each player's equilibrium contract is a no-win–no-pay contract. Then, we examine the delegates' equilibrium compensation spreads, effort levels, probabilities of winning, expected payoffs, and the players' equilibrium expected payoffs. We show that economic rents for the delegates may exist.
