Oligopoly price discrimination, competitive pressure and total output

Iñaki Aguirre ()

No 2019-50, Economics Discussion Papers from Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW)

Abstract: This paper extends the traditional analysis of the output effect under monopoly (third-degree) price discrimination to a multimarket oligopoly. The author shows that under oligopoly price discrimination, differences in competitive pressure, measured by the number of firms, across markets are more important than the relative demand curvature when determining the effect on total output.
