Abstract: We consider a model of price competition in a homogeneous good, with soft-capacity constraints, in the special case of a Sone-Geary production function that implies a minimum firm size and leads to a U-shaped average cost function. We study free entry and obtain a Chamberlin-like result: zero profit and a positive markup at equilibrium.
