Oligopoly Dynamics

Author

  • Cabral, Luís

I argue that dynamic oligopoly models are an area of industrial organization where much work needs to be done and much work can be done. In some particular settings (e.g., network industries), dynamic oligopoly models provide sensible answers when static models fall short of doing so.
