Price competition and limited attention

Alexander Karpov ()

No 2017-89, Economics Discussion Papers from Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW)

Abstract: The paper develops a model of price competition in presence of consumers with limited attention. Education and obfuscation marketing strategies are studied. It is shown that firms in highly competitive industries have incentives to obfuscate, but firms in low competitive industries have not.
