Monotone comparative statics with separable objective functions
The sum of a supermodular function, assumed nondecreasing in the choice variable, and of a 'concavely supermodularizable' function, assumed nonincreasing in the parameter variable, satisfies the Milgrom-Shannon (1994, Monotone comparative statics, Econometrica 62, 157-180) single crossing condition. As an application, I prove existence of a pure strategy Nash equilibrium in a Cournot duopoly with logconcave demand, affiliated types, and nondecreasing costs.
