If you turn to the answers to get clues or help, you are wasting a chance to test how well you are prepared for the exams. In some cases, competition in terms of price changes seems more logical than quantity competition, especially in the short run. Therefore, in Bertrand competition the market ultimately reaches an efficient equilibrium, where price is equal to the price in perfect competition and the firm’s don’t earn economic profits.

Second, if the degree of product differentiation is small enough, then the merger criterion under the Cournot duopoly is more stringent than that under Bertrand duopoly. sic duopoly model, named in his honour. Quantity precommitment and Bertrand competition yield Cournot outcomes David M. Kreps* and Jose A.

I prove that the Cournot price can be lower than Bertrand price when the R&D technology is relatively inefficient; thus, Cournot market structure can generate larger consumer’s surplus and welfare. %PDF-1.3 %���� 0000001199 00000 n 0000056874 00000 n Firms are identical and produce an homogenous product.
