The optimality of optimal punishments in Cournot supergames

Helmuts Azacis () and David Collie

No E2007/27, Cardiff Economics Working Papers from Cardiff University, Cardiff Business School, Economics Section

Abstract: The result of Colombo and Labrecciosa (2006) that optimal punishments are inferior to Nash-reversion trigger strategies with decreasing marginal costs is due to the output when a firm deviates from the punishment path being allowed to become negative.
