However, the precise limitations the law imposes on spatial prices are not exactly well defined. One point is relatively clear: that "no question of.

An established result is that price discrimination tends to increase competition and reduce profits in the case of spatial differentiation (e.g.

Thisse and Vives ). We show that, instead, price discrimination may not have these effects in the mixed-strategy equilibria that exist with Author: Matthias Hunold, Johannes Muthers.

spatial price discrimination framework with arbitrarily many heterogene-ous firms. We provide a unique equilibrium outcome without imposing restrictions on the distribution of marginal costs across firms.

Spatial price discrimination represents the ability of a firm to charge different prices to consumers at different locations in space. In particular, although we know that spatial price discrimination will, in general, increase a monopolist's profit, the assumption that profit maximising, spatially competitive, firms will adopt f.

Also, in models of spatial competition with price discrimination it is usually assumed that the firms that produce the final output are the only agents who have access to the transportation by: However, the theoretical implications of assuming away spatial elements may be especially significant for pricing practices and hence for competition.

This volume shows why and in what ways the concept of economic space is vital and thus needed to reform orthodox price by:   Under spatial price discrimination a critical cost of an upstream monopoly is the resulting distortion in downstream locations.

While this is well-established for linear production costs it is examined here for the first time for convex production costs. Convex production costs create their own location distortions yet it is shown that the presence of the upstream monopoly has a smaller Cited by: 2.

In other words, spatial price discrimination is the limit of m-tier price discrimination. We have seen in that the game involving the choice between mill and discriminatory pricing has the structure of the Prisoner's by: Our paper can thus provide some benchmark results of mergers in a spatial model with price discrimination.

Works on spatial competition with discriminatory pricing assume that the input market is competitive or, at least, that upstream input suppliers do not offer price schedules contingent on downstream location by: of spatial price discrimination under conditions of varying intensities of competition over an economic space.

More generally, the paper is designed to determine the effect on prices of rival locations and the intensity of their competition. Sharp contrasts between spaceless and spatial price theory will thus be drawn, with competitive differences.

Downloadable (with restrictions). This study describes a spatial model of price discrimination in two-sided media markets. Given that media platforms offer a uniform price for consumers and either a uniform or discriminatory price for advertisers, we compare a platform’s profit and welfare under these two different pricing schemes.

In contrast to the well-known result that price. A more recent development is spatial competition, which serves as a foundation for models of imperfect competition. The concept of space as the groundwork for imperfect competition provides many useful insights into price determination and resource allocation.

Our goal is to illustrate these insights. Downloadable. type="main"> The spokes model allows to address nonlocalized spatial competition between firms. In a spatial context, firms can price discriminate using location-contingent pricing. Nonlocalized competition implies that neighboring effects are not relevant to firms.

This paper analyzes spatial price discrimination and location choices in the spokes model. This paper considers spatial competition as a form of perfect competition, in the sense that the firms are assumed to be price-takers located at the centre of a market area and practising uniform.

It is also well known that the location of processors relative to competitors crucially affects the intensity of competition. "Mixed oligopoly and spatial price discrimination with foreign firms," Regional Science and Urban Economics, Elsevier, vol.

A two-stage Bertrand-type model and a two-stage Cournot-type model are considered. If firms choose location and then set prices, agglomeration never arises; instead, if firms choose location and then set quantities, agglomeration arises at one endpoint of the segment when the transportation costs are low Cited by: Lijesen et al, ).

If so, the difference in the prices offered by spatial competitors at two separate locations is not explained by the cost of transportation [].Instead, buyers of farm outputs use discriminatory pricing to exert local market by: 2.

Price discrimination is a microeconomic pricing strategy where identical or largely similar goods or services are transacted at different prices by the same provider in different markets.

Price discrimination is distinguished from product differentiation by the more substantial difference in production cost for the differently priced products involved in the latter strategy.

Mergers in markets with spatial price discrimination have been investigated because such pricing commonly occurs (Thisse and Vives ). In these markets, a firm's price is dictated by the delivered cost of its adjacent rivals, and, a consequence, only mergers between adjacent firms influence price.
