题目:Disaster Adaptation Investments with Inter- and Intra-port Competition and Cooperation

摘要:This study analytically investigates the adaptation investments made by two landlord ports with each severing their respective captive markets while competing for common hinterland.  Each port consists of a port authority that is either publicly owned (with an objective of welfare maximization) or privately owned (with profit maximization as its objective), and a private terminal operator. We examine the impacts of inter-port and intra-port competition and cooperation on port adaptation investments, as well as the ownership impacts. We model the probability of the disaster to be ambiguous at the adaptation investment stage (Knightian uncertainty), but will be known later after the completion of the adaptation with the advancement in scientific research during the lengthy adaptation construction. The model shows that a higher expectation of the disaster occurrence probability (risk) encourages the adaptation, but the ambiguity (variance) of the disaster occurrence probability at the adaptation investment stage can discourage the adaptations. Public ownership of port authority leads to more port adaptation investments. Inter-port competition also results in more adaptation investments (i.e., the competition effect). For private port authority, there is free-riding between the port authority and the terminal operator (i.e., the free-riding effect) within each port. In addition, public ownership of the port authorities does not always lead to a higher expected social welfare than the private ones.
