Thus, the so-called Coase conjecture holds in Sobel and Takahashi's model: As transaction costs become negligible, bilateral negotiation results in an efficient outcome and the entire surplus is appropriated by the informed party. In the two-stage model, a non-negligible fraction of types () E [0, 8-i~~261 ) reject both equilibrium offers. So, given buyers with a low valuation, there is inefficiency /rom too little trade - possible mutual gains are not even realized with delay. For above distribution assumptions, this type of inefficiency is an artefact of the restriction to two stages.

This means that player 1 always proposes x· and player 2 always proposes y. when it is l's and 2's turn, respectively. It remains to check that player 1 rejects an offer x if and only if x < y. , and that player 2 rejects an offer x if and only if x > x· in any SPE. The if-part must be true to make x· and y. , respectively, an optimal proposal. Concerning the only- if-part, note that a rejection of proposals strictly greater than y. 22) and (A3). o Note that for part i), only the existence requirement of (A6) is used.
