Increasing returns to information: evidence from the Hong Kong movie market
We examine a sample of 300 movies that appeared on the top-10 charts in Hong Kong. We apply an empirical test proposed by Ijiri and Simon (1974) and find that movie revenues in the territory of Hong Kong are consistent with the hypothesis of increasing returns to information. This empirical result confirms the results of De Vany and Walls (1996) who found evidence of increasing returns to information in their analysis of movie data from the US Top-50 charts.
