Abstract

Italian Abstract: Note sui modelli classici di strategie di differenziazione orizzontale del prodotto con costi di trasporto lineari Hotelling (1929) e quadratici D'Aspremont, Gabsewicz e Thisse (1979). Vengono studiati i risultati dovuti ad imprese con funzioni di costo diverse. Segue una discussione sulla validità del principio di massima o minima differenziazione e sulla validità dei paramentri e delle ipotesi che conducono a risultati cosi diversi.

English Abstract: Notes on classic models of horizontal differentiation and different technologies with linear - Hotelling (1929) - versus - D'Aspremont, Gabsewicz e Thisse (1979) - quadratic costs. The aim is to discuss the likelihood of maximal versus minimal differentiation and what parameters and logic would lead to so different conclusions.
