Economics at your fingertips  

Silent financial interests and product innovation

Anna Bayona and Ángel L. López

Economics Letters, 2018, vol. 170, issue C, 109-112

Abstract: We study quality-enhancing R&D, price competition, and welfare in markets with asymmetric passive partial ownership (PPO) holdings. The asymmetries in PPOs generate a positive re-allocation effect which, in some cases, can increase consumer and total surplus in markets with no spillovers.
