Example text

We analysed only the case of cooperation among FOCJ that provide homogeneous local public goods. In this case, minimum differentiation (that is, both facilities located at the centre of the region at L/2, where space in the region is described by the interval X = ([0, L]) is the only equilibrium. Given that the efficient locations are those that minimize total transport costs (in this case at L/4 and 3L/4), this equilibrium is inefficient. As we explain in Chapter 2, under competition, the use of discriminatory pricing leads to the optimal location choices of two competing local service providers in an asymmetrical geographical structure.

Thus, if competition in a region is too intense, the local service provider offering the transportation service can easily (in terms of cost) reallocate its vehicles to another region where it can achieve higher profits.

3. For the case in which no regulation is present, for distances greater than rM, such as r2, the optimal consumption choice would be s2 and z2, at point 2, and the bid rent would thus be ⌿(r2, u*). However, with the lot-size restriction, at distance r2 the individual must consume sM, so in order to obtain utility u*, he/she must consume zM. 3 for any distance. However, at distance r2, transportation costs are higher than at distance rM, so the maximum he/she is now willing to pay for a unit of land at r2, in order to obtain u*, will be ⌿(r2, u*)Ј, which is smaller than ⌿(r2, u*) (the bid rent without regulation), because the individual cannot optimally choose his/her level of land consumption.
