Pascal Billand (GATE Lyon Saint-Etienne), Christophe Bravard (GATE Lyon Saint-Etienne), Subhadip Chakrabarti (Queen's University Belfast), Sudipta Sarangi (Louisiana State University) offer A Note on Networks of Collaboration in Multi-market Oligopolies.
ABSTRACT: In this note, we extend the Goyal and Joshi's model of network of collaboration in oligopoly to multi-market situations. We examine the incentive of firms to form links and the architectures of the resulting equilibrium networks in this setting. We also present some results on efficient networks.
