Long-Term and Short-Term Contract in a Mixed Market
15 Pages Posted: 7 Sep 2005
With a two-period mixed oligopolistic framework, this paper analyses the interaction between the length of incentive contracts and market behaviour. Assuming an environment in which firms choose either a long-term or short-term contract, we examine how contracts differ between public and private firms. The results show that the contracts would differ completely among firms; public firm prefers to make a short-term contract while private firm makes a long-term contract.
