Abstract: We introduce R&D activity and R&D subsidies in the context of a mixed oligopoly and evaluate the effects of privatization on welfare. We show that when R&D subsidies are employed, privatization is welfare and R&D promoting provided that the number of competitors is sufficiently large.

Keywords: mixed oligopoly; process innovation; R&D subsidy; privatization. (search for similar items in EconPapers)
