Learning in a "Basket of Crabs": an agent-based computational model of repeated conservation auctions

Hailu, Atakelty; Schilizzi, Steven


Auctions are increasingly being considered as a mechanism for allocating conservation contracts to private landowners. This interest is based on the widely held belief that competitive bidding helps minimize information rents. This study constructs an agentbased model to evaluate the long term performance of conservation auctions under settings where bidders are allowed to learn from previous outcomes.
