Cooperación en modelos de Cournot con información incompleta/Cooperation in Cournot’s Models with Incomplete Information



    () (Departamento de Economía Aplicada, UNIVERSIDAD DE VALLADOLID, ESPAÑA.)


Se estudia el oligopolio de Cournot donde el proceso de ajuste de la producción se realiza considerando que las empresas carecen de información completa sobre el comportamiento de sus competidoras. En este contexto, suponiendo la intención cooperativa como factor fundamental, se alcanzan equilibrios cooperativos empleando sistemas dinámicos discretos que tienen en cuenta la interacción repetida de las empresas. El trabajo muestra que la cooperación es posible sin necesidad de acuerdo previo. Cournot oligopoly is studied under the circumstances that firms do not have complete information about their competitors' behaviour. In this context, assuming that cooperative intention is the main aspect, we can reach cooperative equilibriums by employing discrete dynamical systems that take into account repeated interactions between firms. This paper shows that cooperation is possible without a previous agreement.
