Exclusive Contracts under Financial Constraints
This paper constructs a model of anticompetitive exclusive dealing in the presence of financial constraints. Because of the presence of these constraints, the incumbent cannot remain in business if a deviant buyer appears. We argue that the existence of financial constraints eliminates the buyer's profit in deviating from exclusive contracts. As a result, when compared with previous studies, the possibility of exclusion increases. That is, exclusion arises, even when buyers compete less intensively.
