Abstract

Hamilton et al. (Regional Science and Urban Economics 19:87–102, 1989 ) claim that under certain conditions Cournot spatial discrimination always yields agglomeration of firms. However, I provide a counter-example that shows that this claim is not correct. Copyright Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2015
