FALSE: Profiles of product markets in the CSG clearly show that as additional firms enter the market the sales of each firm in the market falls, holding the common price constant. In the Hotelling Pricing Game, firms can set prices and locations are fixed. This is also referred to as the principle of minimum differentiation as well as Hotelling's linear city model.

In this paper we consider a Hotelling model on the linear city, where the location is not a free good. 1 Spatial Competition 1.1 The linear city (Hotelling, 1929) • Linear city of length 1. In Hotelling’s original model, consumers always consume the good, they thus minimize their disutility Min (d(x,a)+p,d(x,b)+q).

Technical report RM/15/040, Maastricht University (2015). Abstract We analyze the Hotelling-Downs model of winner-take-all elections with sequential entry where ≥2 ‘office-seeking’ candidates with privately known qualities choose entry decisions and commit to policy platforms on entering. Firms can locate outside the city and market conditions are common knowledge. Sci. Nuñez, M., Scarsini, M.: Large location models. Reg. Salop, S.C.: Monopolistic competition with outside goods.

The Hotelling model has been adopted with some success by Downs (1964) to explain centralist tendencies in political platforms and by Steiner (1961) to explain similarities in television programming on different channels.

We solve then the cases in which costs are linear (as in Hotelling’s original model) and in which costs are quadratic. ABSTRACT . Econ. Crossref . Salop’s circular city model is a variant of the Hotelling’s linear city model.Developed by Steven C. Salop in his article “Monopolistic Competition with Outside Goods”, 1979, this locational model is similar to its predecessor´s, but introduces two main differences: firms are located in a circle instead of a line and consumers are allowed to choose a second commodity. By contrast, with multi-homing, the result is reversed because the total demand of platform 1 is independent of the price charged by platform 2.

After the first step, in which the classical duopoly game is played, we suppose that in a second step a third firm enters the market and that the incumbents are allowed to react to this entry.

The classical model of spatial competition (Hotelling, 1929) predicts that, when two firms (or two political parties) compete for customers (voters) by choosing locations on a linear market (policy space), the only stable outcome is for both firms to locate at the center of the market. Profits are non-monotonic in market size, even in the range where the number of firms does not change. Tinbergen Institute Discussion Paper. Organ.
