FOB or Uniform Delivered Prices : Strategic Choice and Welfare Effects

  title={FOB or Uniform Delivered Prices : Strategic Choice and Welfare Effects},
  author={Mingxia Zhang and Richard J. Sexton},

Prior work on duopoly using inelastic demands leads to biased results and our model on duopsony with elastic supply eliminates the bias. (subject code: 3) * The corresponding author.
