On advertising durability and product durability
This paper uses a simple two-period model to examine the behaviour of a monopolist who produces a durable good and engages in advertising that is also somewhat durable. It is found that changes in product durability and advertising durability have opposite effects on profit-maximizing output and advertising. Policy implications for antitrust and health regulation are discussed.
