Vertical integration and knowledge disclosure

Chrysovalantou Milliou () and Emmanuel Petrakis ()

Economics Letters, 2019, vol. 177, issue C, 9-13

Abstract: We explore the incentives of a vertically integrated firm to disclose its advanced downstream technology to its downstream customer-rival. We show that such incentives are present under both price and quantity competition. We also show that knowledge disclosure can discourage foreclosure.
