【主题】Does vertical integration increase product quality
【点评】李三希
【摘要】Numerous product quality scandals are caused by low quality inputs. When downstream firms cannot perfectly observe the quality of their inputs, upstream firms have moral hazard problems. If vertical integration per se does not eliminate the moral hazard problems, do downstream firms still have incentives to integrate upstream firms to improve product quality? We find that given the precision of the downstream firms` monitoring, when the public monitoring level is very high or very low downstream firms have no incentive to integrate; when the public monitoring level is medium downstream firms have incentives to integrate. In addition, under vertical integration firms always produce high quality products.
