Output and R&D subsidies in a mixed oligopoly

Sang-Ho Lee () and Yoshihiro Tomaru ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: We analyze an oligopoly where public and private firms compete in quantity and R&D. Using general functions, we show that an output subsidy and an R&D tax can achieve the first-best allocation. Moreover, the degree of privatization does not influence the optimal output subsidy but does influence the optimal R&D tax.
