The paper takes the approach that observed differences in firm size and market share may be explained by producers having access to different Information at the time of their Investment decisions. This view is examined in a duopoly production model where each firm commits itself to a production plan based on proprietary Information on future market conditions. The model is used to analyze the effect of different Information structures on market conduct and performance.
