Then, an equilibrium exists always, either as a separating equilibrium (Riley, Wilson), or as a pooling equilibrium (Wilson). 20 Other, more recent, extensions concern the case where the individuals face a random loss distribution (Doherty and Jung, 1993; Doherty and Schlesinger, 1995; Landsberger and Meilijson, 1996; Young and Browne, 1997), and the case where they are exposed to multiple risks (Fluet and Pannequin, 1997). Allard, Cresta and Rochet (1997) have also shown that the Rothschild-Stiglitz results are not robust to the introduction of transaction costs: for arbitrary small fixed set-up costs pooling equilibria may exist in a competitive insurance market, and high risk individuals (rather than low risk individuals) are rationed.
For this reason, price-quantity contracts are unavailable. The equilibrium is a pooling equilibrium with partial insurance for the good risks, as in Pauly (1974). 23 In the first period, insureds may choose either a pooling contract with partial coverage and possible renegociation in the second year, or the Rothschild-Stiglitz contract designed for high risks. 21 12 Developments in Risk and Insurance Economics 17 balling", since a positive rent must be paid in the second period to the high risk individuals which experienced no loss in the first period, and this is compensated by a positive expected profit on the pooling contract in the first period.
More recently, Bond and Crocker (1991) pointed out that risk categorization may be endogenous if it is based on information on consumption goods that are statistically correlated with an individual's risk (correlative products). Thus, adverse selection and moral hazard becomes related. If individual consumption is not observable, taxation of correlative products by the government may be used to limit moral hazard and reduce the need for selfselection mechanisms as an instrument for dealing with adverse selection.
