Spatial price discrimination in the spokes model
AbstractThe spokes model is a recent framework to study n-firms spatial competition. In a spatial framework firms delivering their product can price discriminate with respect to consumersâ location. Conditions for the existence of a price-location equilibrium of the spokes model with delivered product are established in both the case where there are as many firms as spokes and in the case not all spokes are occupied. The equilibrium outcome may be interpreted as one firm supplying a "general purpose product" while others focusing on their "niche".
