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

32 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 706 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 )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 528 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

Infrastructure concessions in Latin America government-led renegotiations by J. Luis Guasch( )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors complement the existing knowledge in the renegotiation literature on infrastructure concessions by analyzing government-led renegotiations. They first propose a multiple-period theoretical framework in which both Pareto-improving and rent-shifting renegotiations at the initiative of the government can occur. They then perform an empirical analysis based on a sample of 307 water and transport projects in five Latin American countries between 1989 and 2000. While some of the main insights from the previous literature are unchanged, for example concerning the importance of having a regulator in place when awarding concessions and the fragility of price cap regulatory schemes, there are also significant differences as predicted by the model, in particular with respect to the effect of investment and financing, as well as the corruption variables. The authors provide additional evidence showing that a good regulatory framework is especially important in contexts with weak governance and political opportunism. "--World Bank web site
