Choix de capacités et comportements stratégiques

Thierry Pénard ()

Annals of Economics and Statistics, 1997, issue 46, 203-224

Abstract: This paper tries to give a theoretical foundation to the idea that symmetric markets are more collusive than asymmetric markets. To prove this idea, we use a non cooperative repeated game in which firms choose their capacities in a first stage and then compete infinitely in price in a second stage. We characterise the optimal choices of capacities at the equilibrium. We conclude on the antitrust policy lessons of these results.
