Minimum Quality Standards with More Than Two Firms Under Cournot Competition

Mario Pezzino ()

The IUP Journal of Managerial Economics, 2010, vol. VIII, issue 3, 26-45

Abstract: This paper presents a study of the effects of the introduction of a Minimum Quality Standard (MQS) in a vertically differentiated market in which three identical firms compete in quantities in the short run and face quality-dependent fixed costs. In contrast to what has been shown under the assumption of Bertrand triopolistic competition (Scarpa, 1998), the introduction of an MQS has a positive effect on the average provision of quality.
