Title: Contests for Revenue Share

Abstract: In a framework of contest design, we study capacity-constrained competition and analyze its resulting revenue shares. Our analysis contrasts the near-symmetric case, where firms have similar supply sizes, and the extremely asymmetric case, where one large firm dominates the market. In particular, we show that while in the near-symmetric case simple contests provide near optimal equilibrium revenues for all sellers, in the asymmetric case a large firm can design more complicated contests that result in disproportionally low equilibrium revenues for her smaller opponents.

This is joint work with Uriel Feige and Moshe Tennenholtz.
