      Ambrus, Attila; Takahashi, Satoru (Society for Economic Theory, 2008)

      Dispersion in retail prices of identical goods is inconsistent with the standard model of price competition among identical firms, which predicts that all prices will be driven down to cost. One common explanation for such ...
