Voracity, growth and welfare
AbstractThis paper explores some implications of the comparison between feedback Nash and Stackelberg equilibria for growth and welfare in a `voracity' model. We show that as compared to the Nash equilibrium, the Stackelberg equilibrium involves a lower growth rate while it leaves both the leaders and the followers better o , i.e., the Stackelberg equilibrium is Pareto superior to the Nash equilibrium.
