摘要:

We consider a project assignment problem where a Principal needs to assign multiple projects to an Agent. The Agent is privately informed about her cost, which evolves stochastically over time. To fully characterize the optimal mechanism, we identify the key trade-off of the Principal, which is the comparison between the benefit from an immediate assignment at high cost and the payoff from a delayed assignment at low cost. We show that the capacity constraint can reduce the payoff of the Principal and create a “hold-up” problem. We highlight this point by comparing the limit of the optimal payoffs of the Principal when the capacity constraint is present, with the Principal's optimal payoff when the capacity constraint is absent.
