11a) i=1 Assuming interior optimum the output vector qF (n) = ((qiF (n), . , qnF (n)) can be characterized by (∂/∂qi )W = f (Q F (n)) − C (qiF (n)) = 0. 10a). 10a). Then ns exceeds the socially first-best number of firms nf , , whenever nf > 1. 11b) that is, price equals average cost. As an example consider a linear demand and quadratic cost function model p = A − Q, C(q) = K + aq + (b/2)q2 ; 44 Competition and Growth then it can be shown that qF (n) − q(n) = (A − a)/[(n + b)(n + b + 1)] which shows that limn→∞ (aF (n) − q(n)) = 0, that is, in the limit the Cournot equilibrium output a(n) = qs (n) converges to the first-best (perfectly competitive) output qF (n) as n tends to infinity.

Since r ∗ is not observable, he substituted a linear function of variables representing entry barriers and other entry conditions. His study based on Canadian manufacturing data for the period 1964–67 confirmed the Bain conclusion that high barrier industries are significantly more profitable than other industries. , share of top 10 firms in industry output), E0 is the composite entry barrier index and G is a measure of past sales growth. This equation implies that without barriers to entry there is no reason for market power to rise just because the industry is more concentrated.

Following the Schumpeterian theory of technological innovations the main source of such increasing returns is the cumulative aspect of innovations, where “size begets size” causes industrial dynamics to be characterized by nonlinear and path dependent processes, where random events like a new technical process may have lasting and irreversible effects on the dynamic evolution of the selection process. Secondly, firms differ significantly in their commitment and ability to innovate. Thus innovations in products and processes are largely endogenous to the firm through R&D investment and learning-by-doing.
