Special Issue Call for Papers: "The Hotelling Line at 95"

In 1929, Harold Hotelling published his seminal paper “Stability in Competition”. We invite submissions to a Special Issue of The Review of Industrial Organization, to appear in 2024 and titled “The Hotelling Line at 95,” on the occasion of the 95th anniversary of the appearance of Hotelling’s  paper.  Contributions that highlight the impacts of the paper on economists’ theoretical and empirical approaches to the analysis of product differentiation, political competition, and spatial relationships are welcome.

Submissions should be received by August 31, 2022. The timing of editorial decisions will be contingent on the refereeing process.

Submissions should be made by e-mail to either:
