Kreps And Scheinkman With Product Differentiation: An Expository Note
AbstractKreps and Scheinkman´s (1983) celebrated result is that in a two-stage model of a market with homogeneous products in which firms noncooperatively pick capacities in the first stage and set prices in the second stage, the equilibrium outcome is that of a one-shot Cournot game. This note derives capacity reaction functions for the first stage and extends the Kreps and Scheinkman result to the case of differentiated products.
