1 depicts the set of types who bid the same in a second-price auction as does type (x, w). This consists of all types on the thin-lined right angle “Leontief iso-bid” curve whose corner lies on the diagonal. As before, let m II (x, w) denote the expected payment of a bidder of type (x, w) in a second-price auction. 9) Now define to be the set of types who bid less than type x , 1 in a second-price auction. 10) to be the probability that a type x , 1 will outbid one other bidder. Notice that this is indeed the distribution function of the random variable X = min{X, W }.

By setting a positive reserve price r the seller runs the risk that if the highest value among the bidders, Y1 , is smaller than r, the object will remain unsold. This potential loss is offset, however, by the possibility that while the highest-value Y1 exceeds r, the second-highest value, Y2 , is smaller than r (in all other cases, the reserve price has no effect). Now the application of the reserve price means that the object will be sold for r rather than Y2 . The probability of the first event is F(r)2 and the loss is at most r.

A more precise result can be formulated along the following lines. Let L I denote the distribution of the equilibrium price in a first-price auction and likewise, let L II be the distribution of prices in a second-price auction. Then L II is a mean-preserving spread of L I —from the perspective of the seller, a second-price auction is riskier than a first-price auction (see Appendix B). 4 depicts the two distributions in the case of uniformly distributed values with two bidders. Since the two distributions have the same mean, the two shaded regions are, as they must be, equal in area.
