CIRANO Working Papers from CIRANO

Abstract: We study the links between observability and flexible technological choices in a duopolistic market. We show that, in large markets, the strategic value of flexibility is positive and observability of technological choices promotes the adoption of more flexible technologies whereas in small markets, the strategic value of flexibility is negative and observability decreases the level of flexibility chosen by firms. On étudie l'impact des conditions d'observation sur les choix de flexibilité technologique dans un duopole. Si le marché est de taille importante, la valeur stratégique de la flexibilité est positive et l'observation des choix technologiques favorise l'adoption de technologies flexibles alors que si le marché est de taille plus faible, la valeur stratégique de la flexibilité est négative et l'observation amène les firmes à choisir des technologies moins flexibles.
