Bhirombhakdi, Kornpob and Potipiti, Tanapong (2012): Practically Implementable Auction for a Good with Countervailing Positive Externalities.
This study theoretically presents a new auction design called "take-or-give auction." The auction solves the free-rider problem in the case of two symmetric and risk-neutral bidders competing for a good with countervailing positive externalities. The auction makes efficient allocation. Moreover, the extension of the auction by addition some rules maximizes the seller's expected revenue.
