Une version précédente du papier est disponible ici.
Résumé: We investigate the role of peer effects at the work place on individual choices of active transportation mode. We collect original data through an online survey on networks and sustainable behaviors among 334 individuals working in ten laboratories of the University of Grenoble Alps in February 2020. We apply linear and non-linear models of peer effects on active modal choice, untwining the role of conformism and strategic complementarity in social influence. We show that given our data, a linear local-average specification is the preferred model of peer effects and we estimate strong and significant endogenous peer effects.

[REPORTE/POSTPONED] Jeudi 9 Février 2023, Julien JACQMIN (NEOMA Business School – Rouen): « The energy community and the grid » (co-écrit avec Axel GAUTIER et Jean-Christophe POUDOU).
Résumé: Renewable energy communities involve various agents who decide to jointly invest in renewable production units and storage. This paper examines how these communities interact with the energy system and can decrease its overall cost. First, we show that a renewable energy community can contribute positively to welfare if the electricity produced by the investment is consumed close to its place of production, i.e. if the community has a high degree of self-consumption. Second, our analysis identifies the condition on prices and grid tariffs to align the community’s interest with welfare maximization. We also show that some of these grid tariffs do not have a negative impact on non-members of the community and could therefore limit potential distributional issues. Third, we argue that variousinternal organization of the renewable energy communities are feasible. The internal organization impacts the distribution of benefits among members but not the global efficiency of the community.

  • Abstract: Low utilization of maternal and child healthcare services remain a challenge in low and lower-middle-income countries. While several studies have documented that financial barriers disproportionately discourage poor women from seeking maternal and child healthcare, empirical evidence reveal instances where even with provision of financial assistance and other initiatives to facilitate healthcare services utilization, women continued not utilizing skilled maternity care. In this study, we investigated how non-cognitive traits matter for the utilization of skilled maternity care in Nigeria. Specifically, we consider the importance of locus of control and the Big-Five personality traits. In the paper, we find that women’s internal locus of control was a significant predictor of the utilization of skilled maternity care. We found significant associations between the components of the Big-Five personality traits and the utilization of skilled maternity care. We also found that some of the components of the Big-Five personality traits, such as conscientiousness, neuroticism and openness to experience were significant predictors of locus of control. Our findings also showed that the Big-Five traits mediated the relationship between locus of control and utilization of skilled maternity care.

  • Résumé/Abstract: We study the impact of horizontal mergers on merging firms’ incentives to invest in demand-enhancing innovation. In our baseline model, we identify four effects of a symmetric merger on these incentives: the innovation diversion effect, the margin expansion effect, the demand expansion effect, and the per unit return to innovation effect. We offer sufficient conditions for a merger to reduce or raise merging firms’ incentives to innovate in the absence of spillovers and efficiency gains in R&D, and find that comparing the innovation diversion and price diversion ratios is informative about the impact of a merger on innovation.
  • Vendredi 25 Mars 2022 , Thierry PENARD (CREM, U. Rennes), 14h, « Multimarket Contact and Platform Competition: Reassessing the Mutual Forbearance Hypothesis », [[Link to the paper]] en collaboration avec Eric DARMON, Thomas LE TEXIER et Zhiwen LI.
  • Résumé/Abstract: Antitrust authorities are particularly concerned with the dominant market position of tech giants such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon. These digital conglomerates are characterized by platform-based business models. However, despite their dominance, they are competing with each other to attract the same groups of users (developers, advertisers, end users, third party sellers, etc). They therefore have not only overlapping users (or sides) but also multimarket contact (MMC). In traditional one-sided markets, theory and empirical evidence show that MMC tends to relax competition. However, it is unclear whether this result holds under platform competition. This paper examines how MMC a ects pricing behaviour and profits of two-sided platforms. We develop a model of platform competition with two distinct markets. We assume that platforms only charge one group of users and provide free access to the other group. We argue that multimarket platforms also generate cross-market externalities that favour their users, in addition to well-known cross-group externalities. We found that when cross-market externalities benefit the side that has free access, price competition is fiercer and total welfare increases under MMC. However, when they benefit the side that pays to access the platform, the same result only holds if the cross-group externality and/or cross-market externality are su\u000Eciently high. Finally, we show that a single-market platform competing with a multimarket platform may be deterred from entering the second market if cross-market or cross-group externalities are high. Our findings contrast with the mutual forbearance hypothesis which claims that MMC relaxes competition in traditional (one-sided) industries. From a competition policy perspective, our paper provides an insight into how antitrust authorities should review conglomerate mergers and assess the e ects of diversification strategies of digital platforms. 
  • Vendredi 14 Janvier 2022, 14h : Thibault SCHREPEL, (U. Amsterdam/Standford), « Adding Bockchains to Antitrusts ». Ce séminaire a repris son dernier ouvrage “Blockchain + Antitrust”.
  • Résumé/Abstract : « Blockchain + Antitrus explores the relationship between blockchain and antitrust, highlights the mutual benefits that stem from cooperation between the two and provides a unique perspective on how law and technology could cooperate.To this end, Professor Schrepel will draw upon legal, economic, and technical insights to introduce blockchain and antitrust mutual flaws and the limitations when they ignore each other. He will explore the anticompetitive practices that may arise in the ecosystem and will cover enforcement issues before showcasing the potential of blockchain and antitrust to complement one another. In a nutshell, this talk will address the benefit of a “law + technology” instead of “law & technology” approach. It calls for computer scientists and lawyers to join forces and explore synergies. »
  • Jeudi 24 Février 2022 , Séminaire Nancy-Nice-Montpellier, 10h, Mehdi AYOUNI (BETA Nancy), « Credence goods, consumer feedback and (in)efficiency ».
  • Résumé/Abstract : We analyze the effects of consumer feedback on a credence goods market. We present a model where consumers sequentially visit a monopolistic expert. Each consumer faces a problem which can be either minor or major. The expert performs a diagnosis that can reveal information about the severity of the problem faced by each consumer. He then implements a treatment which can solve the problem or not. After visiting the expert, each consumer reveals the received treatment and its outcome, i.e. whether it solved her problem. Each consumer receives the feedback from all previous consumers and uses it to update her belief on the ability of the expert to perform an informative diagnosis. She then decides whether to visit the expert. We show that consumer feedback can lead to inefficiency. More precisely, inefficiency appears when the diagnosis is uninformative and the expert overtreats the consumer while the probability of a major problem is sufficiently low. This inefficiency does not arise in the absence of consumer feedback.

    Abstract: We study the effect of property rights over the use of data on market outcomes. For this, we consider a model in which a website offers a service to a set of heterogeneous users and usage generates valuable data but data extraction entails a privacy cost to users. When data extraction is contractible, the trade-off between data monetization and privacy restricts the share of users for which data is indeed monetized. When data extraction is not contractible, both the firm and users prefer the users (the firm) to own the rights for low (high) values of data. We then extend our analysis in allowing the rights to be traded ex-post and discuss how this impacts both efficiency and rent sharing.

    Abstract: We provide an axiomatic characterization of the core of games in effectiveness form. We point out that the core, whenever it applies to appropriate classes of these games, coincides with a wide variety of prominent stability concepts in social choice  and game theory, such as the Condorcet winner, the Nash equilibrium, pairwise stability, and stable matchings, among others.  Our characterization of the core invokes the axioms of restricted non-emptiness, coalitional unanimity, and Maskin invariance together with a principle of independence of irrelevant states, and uses in its proof a holdover property echoing the conventional ancestor property. Taking special cases of this  general characterization of the core,  we derive new characterizations of the previously mentioned stability concepts.
