The potential for a hold-up reduces the efficiency of exchange by causing underinvestment or because efforts to appropriate and protect quasi-rents through bargaining and other rent seeking activities dissipate gains from trade.
When contracts are incomplete, relationship-specific investments may be underprovided due to the threat of opportunistic expropriation or holdup. The authors find evidence of such underinvestment on tenanted land in rural Pakistan. Incomplete Contracts and Investment: Commitment failure lies at the core of incomplete contract theory. The scope of the firm is perhaps the most important point a theory of the firm needs to deal with because it refers directly to the nature and boundaries of the firm. According to Coase (), the existence of the firm is due to the existence of transaction costs, and the firm's boundaries are defined by a simple by:
Transaction cost economics have three premises, which render a contract incomplete. The incomplete contract leads to opportunism, which a potential cost for the contractors. First, Human cognition has limitations. Therefore, individuals cannot foresee the future contingencies and potential opportunism and plan well. Market failure: External effects of pollution. But markets do not always work well.
