Private allocations are generically inefficient because investors and firms fail to internalize how their actions affect liquidity in secondary markets.

We argue that this is due to a double hold-up problem that it is at the core of models used to study trade in over-the-counter markets. Finally, we show an example, which we interpret as a limiting case of the general model where the inefficiency vanishes.
