Cost-saving joint venture under uncertainty

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review


In this chapter, we consider a cost-saving joint venture in the presence of stochastic elements. Section 9.1 formulates a dynamic cost-saving corporate joint venture in a stochastic environment and characterizes its subgame consistent solutions. An explicitly solvable illustration is given in Sect. 9.2. A characterization of the Shapley Value solution to a stochastic cost-saving joint venture is presented in Sect. 9.3 and a payoff distribution procedure leading to a subgame consistent solution is computed. Extensions to infinite-horizon ventures are formulated with explicit illustrations in the subsequent two sections.
