Optimal Resource Allocation In General Cournotcompetitive Equilibrium
Conventional economic theory stipulates that output in Cournot competition is too low relative to that which is attained in perfect competition. We revisit this result in a General Cournot-competitive Equilibrium model with two industries that di er only in terms of productivity. We show that in general equilibrium, the more ecient industry produces too little and the less ecient industry produces too much compared to an optimal scenario with perfect competition.
