In a union-oligopoly framework with differentiated products, this paper endogenizes the mode of product market competition by exploring its strategic role on firms' incentives for collusion.
This paper investigates unionized oligopolistic markets with differentiated products and quality improvement-R&D investments.
In the context of a dynamic game-theoretic analysis we investigate the conditions under which firm-level unions may strategically collude, or not, and the impact of their decisions upon the firms’ incentives to individually spend on R&D investments.
In a union-oligopoly static framework we study the role of unions regarding the possibility and the effects of endogenous cartel formation.
