Abstract: In this paper we show that the increasing marginal cost assumption removes the infeasibility of market structure alteration that is present under the constant marginal cost assumption. Specifically, in an infinitely repeated game with increasing marginal cost, we show that technological improvement has the potential to switch the market structure from collusion to Cournot generating additional welfare gains.
