As before, bidders are assumed to be risk neutral and again we compare first- and second-price auctions. In a substantive departure from the models studied so far, the private information of the bidders is two-dimensional. We will refer to the pair (xi , wi ) as the type of bidder i. In any auction A (say, a first- or second-price auction), a bidder’s strategy is a function of the form B A : [0, 1]×[0, 1] → R that determines the amount bid depending on both his value and his budget. 1 The independence holds only across bidders.
The unusual aspect of an all-pay auction is that all 32 3. The Revenue Equivalence Principle bidders pay what they bid. The all-pay auction is a useful model of lobbying activity. ” Since money spent on lobbying is a sunk cost borne by all groups regardless of which group is successful in obtaining its preferred policy, such situations have a natural all-pay aspect. We are interested in symmetric equilibrium strategies in an all-pay auction with symmetric, independent private values. Suppose for the moment that there is a symmetric, increasing equilibrium of the all-pay auction such that the expected payment of a bidder with value 0 is 0.
2 on page 17. Thus, we conclude that the equilibrium bidding strategy with two bidders with CRRA utility functions u(z) = z α whose values are drawn from the distribution F is the same as the equilibrium bidding strategy with two risk-neutral bidders whose values are drawn from the distribution Fα . Since Fα ≤ F , the expected revenue in a first-price auction with risk-averse bidders is greater than with risk-neutral bidders. The expected revenue in a second-price auction is, of course, unchanged.
