  • Abstract A two-stage Cournot dupoly game is implemented by competition with heterogeneous products to analyze the cooperation between a high technology downstream firm and low technology vertically integrated firm provide cheaper middle good. This game is discussed under two situations: one is high spillover and the other one is low spillover. The high technology firm has to consider the tradeoff between low cost and spillover according to its spillover level. The major difference of this thesis compared to literatures is that the spillover will cause the increasing of inverse demand function of the rival, not the decreasing of the cost. Therefore, competition will become fiercer when they cooperate, but the profits may not decrease necessarily since the rival provides cheaper middle good. We find that there is huge room for cooperation as long as the technological gap is large enough under low spillover. On the other hand, there is no full cooperate equilibrium no matter the technological gap is too large or too small under high spillover. Once they decide to cooperate, it must occur at stage two.
