Abstract

If we take into account the spatial dimension of markets, prices of incumbent firms may be higher, and consumer surplus may be lower with competition. This result obtains unambiguously, even in the highly competitive case of Bertrand competition. In Mikro- und Industrieökonomik ist scheinbar gewiss, dass Wettbewerb zu niedrigeren Preisen führt und dass Konsumenten von Wettbewerb profitieren, während die etablierten Unternehmen einen Nachteil erleiden. Dieser Beitrag verwendet ein raumwirtschaftliches Standardmodell, um zu zeigen, dass dies nicht immer so ist. Der Grund ist, dass durch den Marktzutritt gerade die Konsumenten, deren Preiselastizität am größten ist, von dem Unternehmen bei der Preisbildung nicht berücksichtigt werden.
