Excessive Privatization in an International Mixed Oligopoly: Normative View
Author(s) Lihua Han
This paper analyzes a mixed oligopoly model with two countries each with public and private firms competing in a third country market. We formulate a third country model often used in the field of international trade, and show that there is excessive privatization if the governments adopt the degree of privatization as a policy device.
