Negative externalities may cause delay in negotiation.
We study the strategic equilibria of a negotiation game where potential buyers are affected by identity-dependent, negative externalities. The unique equilibrium of long, finitely repeated generic games can either display delay--where a transaction can take place only in several stages before the deadline--or, in spite of the random element in the game, a well-defined buyer exists that obtains the object with probability close to one.
