Consumer discrimination, duopoly, and black firm entry: The welfare effect of subsidies
AbstractConsumer discrimination, to the extent that it discourages the entry of Black-owned firms may be welfare reducing, as market output is lower than otherwise. This paper offers a simple model of duopoly in which conditions are derived for which a profit subsidy to Black-owned firms increases, decreases, or has no effect on social welfare.
