Monopoly, Non-linear Pricing, and Imperfect Information: A Reconsideration of the Insurance Market
Dezsoe Szalay ()
The Warwick Economics Research Paper Series (TWERPS) from University of Warwick, Department of Economics
I reconsider Stiglitz's (1977) problem of monopolistic insurance with a continuum of types. Using a suitable transformation of control variables I obtain an analytical characterization of the optimal insurance policies. Closed form solutions and comparative statics results for special cases are provided.
