Strategic Location with Asymmetric Transportation Costs


  • Nilssen, T.
  • Sorgard, L.


We extend the classical Hotelling location game with exogenously fixed prices to the case where consumers' transportation costs are asymmetric, in the sence that it is more costly for consumer to move in one direction, say on the left (towards 0), than to move to the right (towards1).
