There are just two firms: firm 1 is a polluter and firm 2 the victim. Firm 2 (the victim) makes an offer of a sidepayment or bribe to firm 1. The bribe is an amount that is made conditional upon the amount of output that firm 1 generates: the greater the pollution, the smaller is the bribe; so we model the bribe as a decreasing function $\displaystyle \beta ( \cdot )$. The optimisation problem is: $\displaystyle \mathop {\max }\limits_{\{ {q^2},\beta \} } \sum\limits_{i = 1}^n {[{p_i}q_i^2  \beta ]}  {\mu _2}{\Phi ^2}({q^2},q_1^1)$ The firstorder conditions are: $\displaystyle \eqalign{ & {p_i}  {\mu _2}\Phi _i^2({q^2},q_1^1) = 0 \cr &  1 + {\mu _2}{{d\Phi _i^2({q^2},q_1^1)} \over {dq_1^1}}{{dq_1^1} \over {d\beta }} = 0 \cr} $ How did they arrive at this expression for the FOC's?
