|Title:||Contest with pre-contest investment||Authors:||Fu, Q.
|Issue Date:||2009||Citation:||Fu, Q., Lu, J. (2009). Contest with pre-contest investment. Economics Letters 103 (3) : 142-145. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.econlet.2009.03.011||Abstract:||In a standard noisy contest, more competition (more contestants) leads to lower individual equilibrium effort. We show that when contestants can make pre-contest investment to enhance their competency, neither equilibrium investment nor individual effort is monotonic in the number of contestants. Individual effort may increase with the level of participation. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.
