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 712 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 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 533 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 311 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

Universal service obligations in developing countries by Antonio Estache( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Estache, Laffont, and Zhang develop a model to analyze the effects of asymmetric information on optimal universal service policy in the public utilities of developing countries. Optimal universal service policy is implemented using two regulatory instruments pricing and network investment. Under discriminatory pricing, asymmetric information leads to a higher price and smaller network in the rural area than under full information. Under uniform pricing, the price is lower but the network is even smaller. In addition, under both pricing regimes, not only the firm but also taxpayers have incentives to collude with the regulator. This paper a product of the Office of the Vice President, Infrastructure Network is part of a larger effort in the network to promote analytical work on emerging policy issues in infrastructure service delivery"--World Bank web site
