This paper examines four models which might be used to account for variations in the number of producers who operate in a particular market over the lifetime of that market. Two of these are standard economics textbook models, one is a non-standard model and one is a textbook model derived from the literature on organizational ecology. The four models have several observable differences and this opens up the possibility of testing any one against the others. We apply these four models to 93… Expand
Modeling Firm Population Dynamics: An Application to the Turkish Manufacturing Industry for the 1950¡V2000 Period
This paper examines the population dynamics of Turkish manufacturing firms using annual data on the aggregate industry over the period 1950-2000. Among the four models considered, the densityExpand
What Drives Market Structure? On the Relation between Firm Demographic Processes, Firms' Innovative Behaviour and Market Structure
In this paper we suggest an structural model that specifies firm growth as a function of firm specific parameters and of competition for purchase power with other firms on a given market. Moreover,Expand
Investment, Externalities & Industry Dynamics
We provide an alternative theoretical explanation for a number of empirical regularities relating to the dynamics of industry structrure (product life cycle) and changes in size and age distributionExpand
Turbulence in industrial populations : the case of the Italian graphic paper industry
Significant and persistent flows of entry and exit, that is, turbulence, are a common feature of most industries, across countries and over time. By means of a new database for the Italian graphicExpand

Geographic location is often a missing component in industry evolution literature whereas the time aspect is rarely considered in agglomeration studies. This paper attempts to fi ll this gap byExpand

Do Entry Conditions Vary across Markets
THE NUMBER OF FIRMS in a market is a primary determinant of market concentration and performance. In the long run the number of firms is affected by the ease with which they can enter and exit. ManyExpand

Competitive Diffusion
The usual explanation for why the producers of a given product use different technologies involves "vintage-capital": A firm understands the frontier technology, but can still prefer an older, lessExpand
Technological Extinctions of Industrial Firms: An Inquiry into Their Nature and Causes
After a buildup in the number of firms, new industries commonly experience a "shakeout" in which the number of firms declines sharply. Three theoretical perspectives on how technological changeExpand

This paper considers the effect of an airline's scale of operation at an airport on the profitability of routes flown out of that airport. The empirical methodology uses the entry decisions ofExpand
Time Paths in the Diffusion of Product Innovations
This study attempts to measure and analyse the diffusion of product innovations. Diffusion is defined as the spread in the number of producers engaged in manufacturing a new product. Thus, the termExpand
The Life Cycle of a Competitive Industry
Firm numbers first rise, then later fall, as an industry evolves. This nonmonotonicity is explained using a competitive model in which innovation opportunities fuel entry and relative failure toExpand
Entry in Monopoly Market
