"A Cooperative Game-Theory Model for Quantity Discounts"
Publication type: Journal article
Quantity discounts offered by a monopolist are considered in the context of a bargaining problem in which the buyer and seller negotiate over the order quantity and the average unit price. All-units and incremental quantity discounts that permit transactions at a negotiated outcome are described. The effect of risk sensitivity and bargaining power on quantity discounts are discussed for alternative bargaining models.
