Abstract

One of the ways to model the supply side of the world oil market is by means of the cartel versus fringe model and to employ the open-loop von Stackelberg equilibrium concept. This note shows that the equilibrium as presented in the literature does not satisfy the optimality conditions for the open-loop equilibrium. The authors show, furthermore, that in contrast with the prevailing view, the equilibrium can display discontinuous price trajectories. Copyright 1992 by Royal Economic Society.
