2. Wang, Jin. Essays on quality screening in two-sided markets.

Degree: PhD, Economics, 2015, University of Southern California

In two-sided markets, consumers care not only about the number of sellers with which they can interact, but also about the quality of products or services these sellers provide. Previous work on two-sided markets has mainly focused on the quantity externality; Little attention has been paid to the quality externality. In this dissertation, I allow both quality and quantity play a role in the end-users' interactions, and analyze how platforms can use quality screening to alleviate the problem of asymmetric information of quality and motivate end-users' participations; and discuss how a platform can implement quality screening and choose optimal quality standard. ❧ The first essay examines the impact of quality screening on end-users' choices in a context of competitive platforms. The analysis proceeds from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. In the theory, I build a model in which two platforms compete but only one of them screens sellers' products. I show that the quality screening influences consumers' expectations of product quality and their choice of sellers and platforms. The resulting screening effect, together with the network and competition effects, further drives sellers to enter different platforms. Comparative static analysis indicates that sellers' incentives to join the platform that screens products follow an inverted U-curve with respect to the observable quality of products. In the empirical study, I transfer the theory to a simultaneous entry game with incomplete information, and carry out the estimation using the Nested Pseudo Likelihood (NPL) estimator with the data from Tmall and Taobao, two online trading platforms operated by Alibaba. The estimation results are consistent with the theory. The counterfactual analysis suggests that quality screening improves the consumers' utility and enlarges Alibaba's market share. ❧ In the second essay, I investigate the optimal thresholds of screening for end-users and the platform. I consider a monopoly platform which utilizes screening to select qualified products onto the market. I find that the platform's profitably optimal screening standard falls below the one that maximizes the consumers' welfare. And the platform prefers to implement quality screening by just informing consumers of the threshold instead of by fully revealing the products' true quality.

3. Chalil, Diana. AN EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS OF ASYMMETRIC DUOPOLY IN THE INDONESIAN CRUDE PALM OIL INDUSTRY .

Degree: 2008, University of Sydney

The apparent increase in market concentration and vertical integration in the Indonesian crude palm oil (CPO) industry has led to concerns about the presence of market power. For the Indonesian CPO industry, such concerns attract more attention because of the importance of this sector to the Indonesian economy. CPO is used as the main raw material for cooking oil (which is an essential commodity in Indonesia) and it contributes significantly to export earnings and employment. However, dominant producers argue that the increase in economies of scale and scope lead to an increase in the efficiency, which eventually will be beneficial for the end consumers and export earnings. This research seeks to examine whether the dominant producers do behave competitively and pass the efficiency gains to the end consumers, or they enhance inefficiency through market power instead. In order to identify the most suitable model to measure market power in the Indonesian CPO industry, different market power models are explored. These models can be divided into static and dynamic models. In general, all of them accept the price–cost margins as a measure of market power. However, static models fail to reveal the dynamic behaviour that determines market power; hence the dynamic models are likely to be more appropriate to modelling market power. Among these dynamic models, the adjustment model with a linear quadratic specification is considered to be a more appropriate model to measure market power in the Indonesian CPO industry. In the Indonesian CPO industry, producers can be divided into three groups, namely the public estates, private companies and smallholders. However, based on their ability to influence market price, smallholders are not considered as one of the dominant groups. By using the adjustment cost model, the market power of the dominant groups is estimated. The model is estimated using a Bayesian technique annual data spanning 1968–2003. The public estates and private companies are assumed to engage in a noncooperative game. They are assumed to use Markovian strategies, which permit firms to respond to changes in the state vector. In this case, the vector comprises the firms and their rivals’ previous action, implying that firms respond to changes in their rivals’ previous action. The key contribution of this thesis is the relaxation of the symmetry assumption in the estimation process. Although the existence of an asymmetric condition often complicates the estimation process, the different characteristics of the public estates and private companies lead to a need for relaxing such an assumption. In addition, the adjustment system—which can be seen as a type of reaction function—is not restricted to have downward slopes. Negative reaction functions are commonly assumed for a quantity setting game. However, the reverse may occur in particular circumstances. Without such restrictions, the analysis could reveal the type of interaction between the public estates and private companies. In…
