A theory of incentives in procurement and regulation by Jean-Jacques Laffont( Book )

33 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les vingt dernières années ont vu le rôle de l'État dans le secteur productif considérablement modifié. De producteur ou acteur politique profondément impliqué dans la gestion des entreprises, il est devenu régulateur et pourvoyeur d'incitations. Son nouveau rôle requérait un cadre conceptuel renouvelé pour concevoir les réformes tarifaires, rendre les entreprises plus responsables de leurs coûts, faciliter la concurrence pour ou dans le marché sans exproprier les opérateurs historiques, ou résoudre les problèmes liés au manque d'engagement de l'État et à sa capture éventuelle.

The theory of incentives : the principal-agent model by Jean-Jacques Laffont( Book )

22 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics has much to do with incentives--not least, incentives to work hard, to produce quality products, to study, to invest, and to save. Although Adam Smith amply confirmed this more than two hundred years ago in his analysis of sharecropping contracts, only in recent decades has a theory begun to emerge to place the topic at the heart of economic thinking. In this book, Jean-Jacques Laffont and David Martimort present the most thorough yet accessible introduction to incentives theory to date. Central to this theory is a simple question as pivotal to modern-day management as it is to econo

Regulation and development by Jean-Jacques Laffont( Book )

19 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Regulation and Development Jean-Jacques Laffont provides the first theoretical analysis of regulation of public services for developing countries. He shows how the debate between price-cap regulation and cost of service regulation is affected by the characteristics of less developed countries (LDCs) and offers a positive theory of privatization that stresses the role of corruption. He develops a new theory of regulation with limited enforcement capabilities and discusses the delicate issue of access pricing in view of LDC's specificities. In the final chapter he proposes a theory of separation of powers which reveals one of the many vicious circles of underdevelopment made explicit by the economics of information. Based on organization theory and history, and using simple empirical tests wherever possible, Professor Laffont offers a comprehensive evaluation of the different ways to organize the regulatory institutions and opens up a rich new research agenda for development studies

Renegotiation of concession contracts in Latin America by J. Luis Guasch( )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Guasch, Laffont, and Straub construct a regulation model in which renegotiation occurs due to the imperfect enforcement of concession contracts. This enables the authors to provide theoretical predictions for the impact on the probability of renegotiation of a concession, regulatory institutions, institutional features, economic shocks, and the characteristics of the concession contracts. Then they use a data set of nearly 1,000 concessions awarded in Latin America and the Caribbean countries from 1989 to 2000 covering the sectors of telecommunications, energy, transport, and water to test these predictions. Finally, the authors derive some policy implications of their theoretical and empirical work. This paper--a product of the Finance, Private Sector, and Infrastructure Unit, Latin America and the Caribbean Region--is part of a larger effort in the region to foster private sector participation in infrastructure
