Abstract: This paper revisits the welfare ranking of revenue maximizing export tax and welfare maximizing export tax in an imperfectly substitutable network goods oligopoly. The results are often strikingly different and opposite to the ones obtained from a similar comparison in non-network goods oligopoly.
