''Limit pricing and strategic investment''
( 2022, Vol. 42 No.4 )
 
 
We study an entry model where an incumbent privately informed about costs can make a cost-reducing investment choice, along with a pricing decision, in order to prevent a competing firm from entering the market. We show that if limit pricing per se can not deter profitable entry, the opportunity to undertake a strategic investment does not provide an additional instrument for the achievement of this goal to the incumbent.
 
 
Keywords: Entry deterrence, signalling, strategic investment, limit pricing, pooling equilibrium
