Asymmetric Information may Protect the Commons: The Welfare Benefits of Uniformed Regulators

Ana Espinola-Arredondo () and Felix Munoz-Garcia ()

No 2013-8, Working Papers from School of Economic Sciences, Washington State University

Abstract: We examine an entry-deterrence model in the commons. We investigate in which contexts the presence of asymmetric information among the fi?rms exploiting the commons becomes welfare improving, relative to complete information, and in which settings an uninformed regulator might have incentives to assess and disseminate the available stock among potential entrants.
