A comment on "Can relaxation of beliefs rationalize the winner's curse? An experimental study"
MetadataShow full item record
Ivanov, Levin, and Niederle (2010) use a common-value second-price auction experiment to reject beliefs-based explanations for the winner's curse. ILN's conclusion, however, stems from the misuse of theoretical arguments. Beliefs-based models are even compatible with some observations from ILN's experiment.
