Abstract

Recently, Batabyal and Yoo (2004) have used a queuing model with two types of citizens (high and low opportunity cost of time) to compute mean wait times in queue for the so called nonpreemptive corruption regime. The purpose of this note is to extend the Batabyal and Yoo (2004) analysis. Specifically, we first study a queuing model with n types of citizens. Next, we calculate mean wait times in queue for all n types of citizens. Finally, we discuss the implications of our findings.
