The Impatient Salesperson and the Delegation of Pricing Authority
NBER Working Paper No. 20529
---- Acknowledgments ----
This work on pricing and authority is in memory of Dale Mortensen, much of whose life work was on search, pricing and wage setting. Dale was a great friend and scholar and his research and friendship will be missed. The literature that his ideas generated will continue to flourish. Comments from Steven Levitt, Paul Oyer, Glen Weyl, and Florian Zettelmeyer are gratefully acknowledged.
