Essays on Delay Reduction Contract, Airline Networks and Agricultural Land Marketization
This thesis consists of three self-contained papers, each of which corresponds to one chapter. The first chapter, jointly written with Estelle Malavolti, mainly uses the methodology of contract theory to address the adverse selection problem in the design of delay reduction contract in Europe. The second chapter investigates the dual roles of congestion delays and horizontal product differentiation in airline network choice. Moreover, the third chapter, jointly written with Wanjun Yao and Shigeyuki Hamori, tests empirically whether or not the agricultural land marketization will necessarily improve the average land productivity by examining the role of the inverse relationship between farm size and land productivity.
