Strong Duality in Monopoly Pricing

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The main result in Daskalakis, Deckelbaum, and Tzamos (2017) establishes strong duality in the monopoly problem with an argument based on transportation theory. We provide a short, alternative proof using linear programming.
