Flexibility and adjustment to information in sequential decision problems : a systematic approach by Armin Schmutzler( Book )
13 editions published in 1991 in 3 languages and held by 190 libraries worldwide
This book provides a systematic approach to sequential decision problems from the vantage point of economic theory. The emphasis is on the interplay between irreversibility, uncertainty and information. In particular, it is shown how flexibility (liquidity) considerations can be modelled in a general choice-theoretical framework. The book ties together differentstrands of literature. This aim is achieved by working in a sufficiently general framework that is illustrated by means of examples from capital and investment theory, environmental economics (including option value theory), monetary theory and management science. The systematic treatment of the subject is novel. In addition, a considerable number of newresults are proved, particularly in chapter 3. The reader can expect a relatively straightforward introduction to central ideas of intertemporal decision problems under uncertaintly, which he/she would otherwise have to extract from a rather disperse literature
The effects of gobalization on worker training by Hans Gersbach( file )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
We consider a three-stage game to examine how market integration affects firms' incentives to provide general worker training. In stage 1, firms invest in productivity-enhancing training. In stage 2, they can make wage offers for each others' workers. Finally, Cournot competition takes place. When two product markets become integrated, that is, replaced by a market with greater demand and more firms, training by each firm increases, provided the two markets are initially sufficiently concentrated. When barriers between less concentrated markets are eliminated, training is reduced. Integration increases welfare if it does not reduce training. However, for large parameter regions, welfare decreases if integration reduces training. We also show that opening product markets to countries with publicly funded training or cheap, low-skilled labor can threaten apprenticeship systems

A product market theory of training and turnover in firms by Hans Gersbach( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
We develop a product market theory that explains why firms invest in general training of their workers. We consider a model where firms first decide whether to invest in general human capital, then make wage offers for each others' trained employees and finally engage in imperfect product market competition. Equilibria with and without training, and multiple equilibria can emerge. If competition is sufficiently soft and trained workers are substitutes, firms may invest in non-specific training if others do the same, because they would otherwise suffer a competitive disadvantage or need to pay high wages in order to attract trained workers. Government intervention can be socially desirable to turn training into a focal equilibrium
Rotten kids with bad intentions by Nick Netzer( Book )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
We examine a "Rotten Kid" model (Becker 1974) where a player with social preferences interacts with an egoistic player. We assume that social preferences are intention-based rather than outcome-based. In a very general multi-stage setting we show that any equilibrium must involve mutually unkind behavior of both players, endogenously generating negative emotions rather than positive altruism. In a large class of two-stage games that includes principal-agent and gift-giving games, this prevents equilibrium from being materially Pareto efficient. Compared to the subgame-perfect equilibrium without social preferences, efficiency is still generally increased. On the other hand, the materialistic player has lower whereas the reciprocal player has higher material payoffs, so that reciprocity does not increase equity: For sufficiently strong reciprocity concerns, the materialistic player ends up with a negligible share of the gains from trade

Is competition good for innovation? : a simple approach to an unresolved question by Armin Schmutzler( Book )
6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 libraries worldwide
The relation between the intensity of competition and R&D investment has received a lot of attention, both in the theoretical and in the empirical literature. Nevertheless, no consensus on the sign of the effect of competition on innovation has emerged. This survey of the literature identifies sources of confusion in the theoretical debate. My discussion is mainly based on a unified model that simplifies the comparison of different results. This model is also applied to show which factors work in favor of a positive relation between competition and innovation
