Technology Sharing Cartels and Industrial Structure under a Rule of Thumb
AbstractWe analyse the effect of learning by doing on firm performances when profit maximization follows a rule of thumb. Three regimes are compared: the technology sharing cartels, the oligopoly with spillovers, the proprietary regime. We show the dynamic implications on the industrial structure when firm production plan is revisited period by period.
