Abstract [en]

The paper considers Cournot duopoly where the competitors have capacity constraints. An isoelastic demand function, which always results when consumers maximise utility functions of the Cobb–Douglas type, is used. It has been demonstrated that isoelastic demand, combined with constant marginal costs, results in complex dynamics. The purpose of the present paper is to reconsider the case, using in stead cost functions with capacity limits. This is a point on which Edgeworth insisted as important. Comparisons between cases of few large and many small competitors cannot be made when firms have constant returns and hence are all infinitely large in potential.

2009 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The aim of the present paper is to empirically estimate the mon-etary value workers place on safer working conditions. The marginalwillingness to pay for workplace safety is estimated using data onjob durations together with data on accident risks and wages. Theresults indicate that individuals value safety to 0.65-4.1 percent of an-nual wages. Male workers in service occupations are found to have thehighest marginal willingness to pay. Female blue-collar workers arefound to value workplace safety higher than male blue-collar workers.
