Sci. Economides, N.: Symmetric equilibrium existence and optimality in differentiated product markets. Over 10 million scientific documents at your fingertips. Technical report RM/15/040, Maastricht University (2015). 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. Economides, N.: Hotelling’s “main street” with more than two competitors. This note reexamines sequential entry of firms in a Hotelling model of spatial product differentiation as analyzed by Neven (1987). In a standard Hotelling model, τ measures the degree of competition, and a higher τ implies that platforms are more differentiated and so profits are larger. 503–514. J.

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. affected by the number of sellers in each product market) is better described by Hotelling’s model of product differentiation than by the model of monopolistic competition.

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. We also study the catalog compe-tition in the circular model of Salop (1979). The easiest way to view Hotelling's model as a game, is to strictly divide his model into two parts, and make a game for each: a pricing game and a location game. With or without a reservation price, consumer x prefers firm B whenever d(x,a)+p ≥ d(x,b)+q. J. Econ. Peters, H., Schröder, M., Vermeulen, D.: Waiting in the queque on Hotelling’s main street.
