Necessary and Sufficient Conditions for Uniqueness of a Cournot Equilibrium (Classic Reprint)

Description

Excerpt from Necessary and Sufficient Conditions for Uniqueness of a Cournot Equilibrium Our result is that if at all equilibria the determinant of the Jacobian of the marginal profit functions is positive (subject to some conditions), then there is exactly one equilibrium. Conversely, if there is exactly one equilibrium, the determinant must be non negative. If one rules out the case of a zero determinant, then posi tivity of the Jacobian at all equilibria is necessary and sufficient for uniqueness. This condition on the Jacobian can be interpreted in terms of a firm's marginal profit function. At equilibria, the effect of a small change in a firm's output on its own marginal profits must be greater than the effect on its marginal profits from a similar out put change on the part of all other competitors.
