    Optimal Contracting with Subjective Evaluation, American Economics Review, 2003, Correction

    Alexander Nekrasov, UIC Business School brought to my attention the fact that Proposition 3 in this paper is wrong. The results in the paper hold for the class of "authority contracts", as defined by MacLeod and Tan (2017) {MacLeod-Tan-Feb-2017.pdf} . That paper provides a more complete analysis of contracts in this class of models, including a formal model of opportunism.
