Abstract

In this paper, focusing on agents' strategic behavior in their private information utilization, we formulate two types of strategic bidding problems for a simple dynamic principal-agent type linear quadratic (LQ) network where a principal integrates agents' individual controls into the socially optimal one based on information bid by the agents. One is the case that all the agents minimize their own cost, which is undesirable for the principal. The other is an equilibrium in the presence of the incentive design motivated by the standard contract theory to reduce the wasteful social cost. Then we analytically derive optimal designs of strategic bidding for each type and discuss their implications and implementations.
