A comment on 'Cross-border merger, vertical structure, and spatial competition'
The aim of this paper is to revise and correct the results obtained in Beladi et al. [Beladi, H., Chakrabarti, A., Marjit, S., 2010. Cross-border merger, vertical structure, and spatial competition. Economics Letters 109, 112-114]. Specifically, we prove that in the pre-merger free-trade case, Nash equilibrium locations coincide with the equilibrium locations of the two downstream firms, following a cross-border upstream merger.
