This article studies the design of optimal mechanisms to regulate entry in

natural oligopoly markets, assuming the regulator is unable to control the behavior

of firms once they are in the market. We adapt the Clarke–Groves mechanism,

characterize the optimal mechanism that maximizes the weighted sum of expected

social surplus and expected tax revenue, and show that these mechanisms avoid

budget deficits and prevent excessive entry.
