Managerial Delegation in a Mixed Duopoly with a Foreign Competitor

Jorge Fernández-Ruiz

Economics Bulletin, 2009, vol. 29, issue 1, 90-99

Abstract: We examine firms' decisions to hire managers in a duopoly where a public firm competes with a foreign private firm. In contrast with the case in which the public firm competes with a domestic private firm -where only the private firm decides to hire a manager- we find that both firms hire managers. This leads to a social welfare higher than the one obtained when neither firm hires a manager.
