R&D versus output subsidies in mixed markets

Dusanee Kesavayuth () and Vasileios Zikos ()

Economics Letters, 2013, vol. 118, issue 2, 293-296

Abstract: We analyse the relative welfare effects of an R&D and an output subsidy in a mixed duopoly. We show that an R&D subsidy is beneficial for society as a whole, and socially superior to an output subsidy, when spillovers are sufficiently high. Otherwise, an output subsidy is socially superior.
