Obviously, the critical share depends on the shape of the demand function and that of each firm’s cost function. In order to get some numerical values for the critical share, we assume a linear demand curve and constant marginal costs which may differ among firms. As we shall find out in the following analysis, the critical share is surprisingly high. 12) and that the total cost for firm i is given by c i = γi xi . 4), and rearranging the terms, we get xi = 6 α − γi − β D . 14) It is well known that promoting output by a monopoly firm by using subsidies increases total surplus.

The firms are assumed to play Cournot-Nash games in both stages, and we consider the subgame perfect equilibrium of the two-stage game. 1) where ki represents firm i ’s primary marginal cost which does not depend on R&D investment, and hi represents firm i ’s R&D investment. Primary-cost differentials may be due to some firm-specific knowledge or access to special resources, such as locations, raw materials and imported technologies, which may be caused by discriminatory regulations. It is to be noted that we consider only a special case of a more general specification of the costs given by c i = Hi (ki , hi ).

4 are still valid even in the case of foreign penetration through both trade and direct investment. The domestic government is assumed to restrict the capacity of supply by the foreign subsidiary firm in order to protect domestic firms from the foreign penetration. Under perfect competition in the domestic market, such a quantitative restriction decreases domestic total surplus. The loss in domestic surplus is simply considered to be the costs for protecting domestic firms.
