Milgrom, Wilson Win Nobel in Economics for Research on Auctions

(Bloomberg) — Paul R. Milgrom and Robert B. Wilson, both of Stanford University, won the 2020 Nobel prize in economics for their work in developing the theory of auctions.“They have used their insights to design new auction formats for goods and services that are difficult to sell in a traditional way, such as radio frequencies,” the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in a statement on Monday.Wilson, who was born in 1937 in Geneva, demonstrated why rational bidders tend to place bids below their own best estimate of the common value, because they’re worried about the so-called winner’s curse, which describes the phenomenon of paying more than something’s actually worth.Milgrom, born in 1948 in Detroit, analyzed bidding strategies in a number of well-known auction formats.

SUPER-COUPONING: Don’t forget the fine print | Lifestyles



Jill Cataldo

Dear Jill, I was making a purchase from a store. There was a promotion on the webpage offering a 10% coupon for my next shopping trip if I purchased online with store pickup. I did this.

If you’re ready to downsize — especially with jewelry — don’t forget to try selling at pawn shops | Home/Garden

Orderliness is a blessing you leave your children. Which is how I wound up this week in a pawn shop.

For the record, I had never been in a pawn shop. I assumed they were for other people: gun traders, drug addicts, gamblers, those seeking bail money or who were otherwise down on their luck ― not that I haven’t run out of luck myself from time to time. But there I was, in my tailored blouse, good haircut and sensible pumps bargaining with a pawn broker as several closed-circuit cameras looked on.

Christine Gerardi got me into this. You may recall, a few months ago, I wrote about Gerardi, a jeweler who came to my home and helped me sort my jewelry. Besides giving me permission to let go of some dated costume pieces, Gerardi bought some gold jewelry I no longer wore for their melt value. (Huzzah!) During
