Hotelling's "ice cream dealers" with elastic demand
2002 (English)In: The annals of regional science, ISSN 0570-1864, Vol. 36, no 1, 1-17 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
This article reconsiders the Hotelling duopoly model of 1929, but under elastic demand, more precisely a linear demand function. The equilibrium state for identical firms is fully described, and the intervals of different regimes: independent monopolies, genuine duopoly competition, and price cutting wars, are specified in terms of one single compound parameter (maximum price, minus marginal production cost, divided by transportation cost).
