THE CURSE OF WINDFALL GAINS IN A NON RENEWABLE RESOURCE OLIGOPOLY

Hassan Benchekroun () and Ngo Long

Departmental Working Papers from McGill University, Department of Economics

Abstract: We investigate the effect of stock discovery on the profits of non-identical oligopolists. We show that a uniform addition to all stocks could harm firms that are originally larger than average. One conclusion that could be drawn from the results is that a new technology that leads to more efficient exploitation of the available resource is not necessarily welcomed by all firms.
