Example text

A modified spatial model of Cournot duopoly is presented, whereby a two-stage game is played with its first stage determining a production pair prior to a second-stage determination of a vector of allocation to markets. The chapter's interesting findings include certain specific relationships between eqUilibrium output and the form of the consumer demand function. In particular, it is reported that certain convex (concave) demands tend to yield greater (less) output under a more r:ealistic scheme of production prior to allocation than they do under the conventional synchronized scheme of production and allocation.

A strong case therefore is made that space does not matter in the sense that even though jurisdictions with unequal resource endowments and/or production capabilities could appear to create inefficiency and wealth inequality among regions, the existence of footloose residents among regions is shown to help create both efficiency and equality within the confines of the proposed model. It goes without saying that the assumption of footloose residents is crucial, and it is also shown that space does matter with sufficient immobility of residents due to migration costs.
