Abstract

This paper considers domestic (resp. international) Bertrand mixed duopoly competition in which a state-owned welfare-maximizing public firm and a domestic (resp. foreign) profit-maximizing private firm produce complementary goods. The main purpose of the paper is to present and to compare the equilibrium outcomes of the two mixed duopoly models.
