Tirole J (1988) The theory of industrial organization. ciency Christian Bidard University of Paris X-Nanterre Summary. ciency is established if some marginal perturbation leads to a positive surplus for all commodities. We consider the case when, though the original perturbation itself results in positive and negative changes, an adequately chosen combination of such perturbations is conclusive.

Consequently, Π (· ; ε) is monotonically decreasing on [ c (t), ˆ(t)], and hence π ˆ (t) < π c (t), ∀t. c c c ˆ < ξ (t), ξ(t)ˆ ˆ π (t) < ξ (t)π (t), and hence from It then follows that since ξ(t) c c ˆ ˆ (1) that ξ(t)V (t) < ξ (t)V (t). This together with the argument behind the normalization adapted from the proof of Proposition 2, yields Vˆ (0) < V c (0). Since at time T the equilibrium conditions (11) and (26) of the competitive and the monopolistic time-consistent economies coincide, ˆ(T ) = c (T ), yielding equalization of the remaining equilibrium quantities at time T .

The remaining inequalities in (22)–(23) are then straightforward to derive: they are due to f ( , ε) and w = v ( ¯− )/u (f ( , ε)) being increasing in , ∀ε, the good market clearing, and ξ = u (f ( , ε)) being decreasing in , ∀ε. Equation (6) is automatically satisfied in equilibrium due to clearing in the good and labor markets, hence y is indeterminate and we can normalize y = 1. Together with our earlier normalization ξ(0) = 1/y, this yields ξ(0) = 1 in both the competitive and monopolistic pre-commitment equilibria.
