R&D Spillovers and Location Choice under Cournot Rivalry

  • Ngo Van Long
  • Antoine Soubeyran

A model of location choice by Cournot oligopolists is presented, under the assumption that R&D spillovers depend on the distance between firms. We show that a variety of patterns emerge. Agglomeration is optimal under certain assumptions. Geographical dispersion in a two-dimensional plane is another possible outcome. Nous étudions le problème de localisation sous l'hypothèse que le débordement technologique est fonction de la distance entre les entreprises oligopolistiques qui font concurrence à la Cournot. La concentration géographique s'avère optimale dans certains cas. Dans d'autres cas, l'équilibre implique la dispersion géographique.
