« Free entry in general equilibrium models of monopolistic competition : A comment  »

coécrit avec Antoine Vatan (CEPII).

Abstract :

In the present methodological article, we establish that free entry is ill-posed in general equilibrium models of monopolistic competition such a way that the equilibrium number of firms in the long-run is misdetermined.
We also show that a suitable formulation to capture free entry in a general equilibrium analysis is when entry is determined through occupational choice.
