Question #20350

A market has only two sellers. They are both trying to decide on a pricing strategy. If both firms charge a high price, then each firm will experience a 10% increase in profits. If both firms charge a low price, then each firm will experience a 5% decrease in profits. If Firm 1 charges a low price and Firm 2 charges a high price, then Firm 1 will experience a 6% increase in profits and Firm 2 will experience a 2% decrease in profits. If Firm 2 charges a low price and Firm 1 charges a high price, then Firm 2 will experience a 7% increase in profits and Firm 1 will experience a 3% decrease in profits.
