Complementarity, Substituability and Capital Accumulation
AbstractThe preemptive role of capital is analysed in a class of two-player symmetric capital accumulation differential games with reversible investment. It is proved that, in the medium run, the firm with better initial condition exploits its advantage when the game features feedback substituability. Indeed the feedback as well as the open loop Nash equilibria yield an overshooting with respect to the long run steady state for the capital stock of the advantaged firm.
