4. Is there an arbitrage opportunity in the price differentials you identified? What kind of arbitrage transactions would you propose to exploit these opportunities?
Arbitrage opportunities exist in both Royal Dutch and Shell. To exploit the price differentials for Royal Dutch, one would buy shares in the European market (for $141.368) and sell them in the market in New York (for $141.375). To exploit the price differentials for Shell, one would buy shares in the European market (for $124.222) and sell them in the market in New York for ($126.554).
5. Calculate the net payoffs of the arbitrage transactions you suggested. Can such transactions enforce the market discipline?
The net payoff per share of the arbitrage transaction is $0.07 for Royal Dutch and $2.332 for Shell. Arbitrage can enforce market discipline because once the discrepancy in market prices is discovered the price discrepancy is quickly eliminated. This enables buyers avoid prices that will send them into bankruptcy. It also enables sellers to generate revenue (as opposed to losing money in a situation where arbitrage occurred.)

Response Paper #1 The reading materials in Week 6 explore the impact of international law on states, and more specifically, state behaviors.
