Sequential rent seeking

Amihai Glazer, Refael Hassin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider n firms which choose rent-seeking expenditures sequentially, each player anticipating the rent-seeking expenditures that will be made by later movers. We find that the earlier movers need not make larger profits than later movers, and that aggregate profits are lower than in a game in which firms make simultaneous moves.
