''Firms' symmetry and sustainability of collusion in a Hotelling duopoly''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.1 )
 
 
We use a differentiated duopoly a la Hotelling to assess the impact of firms' symmetry on the sustainability of a tacit collusive agreement. We obtain that the smaller firm has the greater incentive to deviate and that symmetry helps collusion for any possible differentiation degree.
