Abstract

We analyze a model of lobbying by oligopolists who allocate entrepreneurial time between lobbying and internal control (monitoring). We seek answers to the following questions: (i) if firms differ woth recpect to comparative advantage in lobbying, what is the equilibrium allocation of time between lobbying and monitoring? (ii) can the possibility of lobbying reverse the profitablity ranking among heterogenous firms?
