Rent Extraction through Alternative Forms of Competition in the Provision of Paternalistic Goods

Abstract: We compare the properties in terms of rent extraction of spatial competition and monopoly franchises using Dutch first price auctions, two of the most widely used tools to regulate public service provision. In a framework where the regulator can imperfectly observe costs, but the latter are not necessarily private information to each competitor, spatial competition is more effective in extracting rent if providers are very different in their productivity and if they can observe the costs of their competitors. When they are quite similar and have limited information on the competitors' characteristics, the use of a monopoly franchise through an auction mechanism should be preferred. In the latter environment, a multiple object auction allows more rent to be extracted from the provider. 1. Introduction Service provision in the public sector has experienced a substantial change through the introduction of forms of competition among providers. For essential facilities (such as energy, gas, and water), competition for and in the market, along with some forms of price regulation, is envisaged. For other local services, competition for the market and price regulation is often used.1 Production costs often become private information to the provider, a problem which the literature has long recognised [1], and for which specific solutions have been proposed [2–7]. In the recent past, policy makers have extended these reforms to the provision of health, social care, education, and other local services. Forms of competition such as spatial competition and monopoly franchises [8–13] have been implemented, but none of them has proved to be optimal. For education, the empirical evidence shows that competition does not have an impact on the cost of providing the service, but it might improve school performances [14–17]; for hospital care and nursing homes the evidence is fairly mixed [18–23]; in all these sectors cream skimming practices might arise [24]. We argue that performances depend on the specific characteristics of each service, which calls for a more accurate investigation of providers’ responses to alternative regulatory instruments in this very particular context. Services are in fact usually produced on demand (and the latter is not very elastic because they are often perceived as a primary need); they cannot be stocked or transported; and their quality is difficult to verify.2 The supply of these services is often associated with the notion of soft paternalism [25]; in other words Government thinks that individuals should use them irrespective of their

Revista de estudios histórico-jurídicos , 2009, DOI: 10.4067/S0716-54552009000100012
Abstract: justice administration during the expedition, in the care of the majors of the holy hermandad, had particular features, different from the administration ordinary majors used to practice in cities and towns. hermandad was made up by two types of majors: from the province, appointed by the king or queen, with jurisdiction in a complete province and seat in the cabildo, and the followers, one per party, of the ones in the province. this study addresses their prerogatives and attributions and the difficulties they faced, the conflicts among themselves and also against military authorities and the complaints against them for their disorganized procedures.

Abstract: La administración de justicia en la campa a, a cargo de los alcaldes de la Santa Hermandad, tuvo sus particularidades, que la diferenciaron de la que ejercían los alcaldes ordinarios en las ciudades y villas. Constituían la Hermandad dos clases de alcaldes: el provincial, de nombramiento real, con jurisdicción en toda una provincia y asiento en el cabildo, y los partidarios, uno por partido, de los comprendidos en la provincia. El trabajo aborda sus prerrogativas y atribuciones, dificultades con las que tropezaron, conflictos que mantuvieron entre sí y con las autoridades militares, y quejas que merecieron por sus procedimientos desarreglados.

Variable structure control for parabolic evolution equations
Laura Levaggi
Mathematics , 2005,
Abstract: In this paper it is considered a class of infinite-dimensional control systems in a variational setting. By using a Faedo-Galerkin method, a sequence of approximating finite dimensional controlled differential equations is defined. On each of these systems a variable structure control is applied to constrain the motion on a specified surface. Under some growth assumptions the convergence of these approximations to an ideal sliding state for the infinite-dimensional system is shown. Results are then applied to the Neumann boundary control of a parabolic evolution equation.
