  • Shubik, Martin

Abstract

It is suggested here that there are many highly different purposes for the study and application of theories of oligopolistic competition, monopolistic competition, and allied topics. This paper sets the different purposes and questions in context, then makes criticisms and suggestions as to where to go from here.
