However, he can only condition the pay on the contractible profit level π – here we ignore the possibility that the manager manipulates profits π. The owner’s objective is to maximize his expected net profit E ε [π (e, ε) − w(π(e, ε))]. The manager’s utility function is u(w, e ). + − That is, a manager receives a higher utility if she receives a higher pay w. She also receives a higher utility if she exerts less effort. In addition, we assume that u is (weakly) concave in w – this amounts to income risk aversion; in the special case that u is linear in w the manager is risk-neutral with respect to income.

In situations like these, we apply the perfect Bayesian Nash equilibrium concept. Here, uninformed players who choose later can use the observed action of the informed party to update their beliefs about the type of the firm. In the monopoly context, the firm may, for instance, choose a very high price to signal the quality of its product. For the reader who is not familiar with these concepts, we provide formal definitions of these concepts in Appendix A. 3 Models and material of Markets and Strategies This book is theory-based.

Suppose firms choose actions over time and consider a particular set of strategies that form a Nash equilibrium. Then this equilibrium is said to be subgame perfect if it induces a Nash equilibrium in any subgame (even if this subgame is reached only off the equilibrium path). For instance, in a price setting oligopoly, one firm may be the first-mover and all other firms choose at a second stage. Here, the firm that is the first-mover anticipates the reaction of its competitors to its price change.
