Minerva G.A., Integration versus Outsourcing with Vertical Linkages. Draft available upon request.
Abstract: I characterize a new theoretical mechanism that brings heterogeneity in organizational forms in a given industry. To do so, I present a variant of Grossman and Helpman (2002) where final goods producers (irrespective of whether they are vertically integrated with the upstream stage or specialized in the downstream stage only) need a basket of differentiated commodities, in addition to labor, as a fixed requirement for production. I then show the existence of an equilibrium populated simultaneously by vertically integrated and non-integrated firms and I study the properties of such an equilibrium.
