Find out more, read a sample chapter. 1. Introduction. The kinked demand curve theory of oligopoly has a distinguished lineage. Put forward independently by Hall and Hitch () and Sweezy (), this theory sought to explain the rigidity of prices under was argued that given an existing price in an oligopoly, if a single firm raises its price, its rivals will not respond, while if it cuts its price, other firms Cited by: 7.

Our contribution in this paper is twofold. First, we test the theory of the kinked (concave) demand curve. We investigate whether the price elasticity of demand does indeed rise in the relative price. Our second contribution is to estimate this price elasticity and especially the.

implications of a “smoothed-off” kink in demand curves for the natural rate hypothesis and macroeconomic stability using a canonical model with staggered price setting. An empirically plausible calibration of the model demonstrates that the kink in demand curves mitigates the influence of high trend inflation on aggregate output through the.   The kinked demand curve, one of the staples of oligopoly theory, was originally formulated as a theory of price rigidity. We review dynamic game-theoretic reformulations, which give rise to a theory of collusive price determination.

The kinked demand curve (Sweezy, ; Hall and Hitch, ) has been one of the staples of oligopoly theory. It was originally formulated as a theory of price rigidity. A firm conjectures that its rivals will match its price if it reduces the price, but will not match its price if it initiates a price increase.

The kinked‐demand theory is illustrated in Figure and applies to oligopolistic markets where each firm sells a differentiated product. According to the kinked‐demand theory, each firm will face two market demand curves for its product.

At high prices, the firm faces the relatively elastic market demand curve, labeled MD 1 in Figure. The kinked demand curve, one of the staples of oligopoly theory, was originally formulated as a theory of price rigidity. We review dynamic game-theoretic reformulations, which give rise to a.

Basically, the kinked demand curve model still holds, it's just that the kink (point A) has shifted up a bit. All this price rigidity means that firms do not compete on price, so they have to resort to non-price competition (see later).

The main weakness with this model is that it is not a theory of price determination. Kinked demand curve limitations. In the above kinked demand curve example we put the kink at a certain price and quantity.

In fact, this price and quantity are not a result of the model, but have been chosen arbitrarily. This illustrates the main shortcoming of the kinked demand curve model. The Kinked Demand Model and the Stability of Cooperation Sergio Currarini and Marco A.

Marini Abstract. This paper revisits a particular behaviour for –rms compet-ing in imperfect competitive markets, underlying the well known model of kinked demand curve. We show that under some symmetry and regu.

This is how the kinked demand curve hypothesis explains the rigid or sticky prices. Solved Question on Kinked Demand Curve. Q: The kinked demand curve model of oligopoly assumes that: response to a price increase is less than the response to a price decrease.

response to a price increase is more than the response to a price decrease. A kinked demand curve occurs when the demand curve is not a straight line but has a different elasticity for higher and lower prices.

One example of a kinked demand curve is the model for an oligopoly. This model of oligopoly suggests that prices are rigid and that firms will face different effects for both increasing price or decreasing price. Answer: B The kinked demand curve model of oligopoly is based on the assumption that each firm believes that A) if it raises or lowers its price other firms will follow.

B) if it raises its price other firms will not follow, and if it lowers its price other firms will follow. The kinked demand curve model assumes that a business might face a dual demand curve for its product based on the likely reactions of other firms to a change in its price or another variable.

ADVERTISEMENTS: The kinked-demand curve as a tool of analysis originated from Chamberlin’s inter­section of the individual dd curve of the firm and its market-share curve DD’. However, Chamberlin himself did not use ‘kinked-demand’ in his analysis.

Hall and Hitch in their famous article ‘Price Theory and Business Behaviour” used the kinked-demand curve not as. -the demand curve is therefore more elastic for a price rise than for a price fall How can game theory be linked to the kinked demand curve theory.

-1 firm has 3 strategies, to keep its price the same, to raise price or to lower price. The kinked demand model is based on the assumption that each firm believes that A) if it raises its price, other firms will follow.

B) if it cuts its price, other firms will not follow. C) if it cuts its price, the other firms will follow. D) it is unable to ever raise its price. Answer: C According to the kinked demand curve theory of oligopoly, each firm believes that if it raises its price. The kinked demand curve model is used to explain noncooperative behavior of oligopoly firms.

The kinked demand curve model is criticized for assuming that prices are more 'sticky' in oligopoly markets. The kinked demand curve model assumes that managers of one firm want to behave in such a way as to maximize the profits of the other.

Theory "Kinked" demand curves and traditional demand curves are similar in that they are both downward-sloping. They are distinguished by a hypothesized concave bend with a discontinuity at the bend - the "kink." Therefore, the first derivative point is undefined and leads to a jump discontinuity in the marginal revenue curve.

a) Rivals.The kinked demand curve of oligopoly was developed by Paul M. Sweezy in Instead of laying emphasis on price-output determination, the model explains the behavior of oligopolistic organizations. The model advocates that the behavior of oligopolistic organizations remain stable when the price and output are determined.Kinked Demand Curve Analysis of Oligopoly 0th Edition by Gavin Reid (Author) ISBN ISBN Why is ISBN important?
