Abstract: In a spatial model of both horizontal and vertical differentiation where an agent can occupy an interval rather than a point on the Hotelling line, one can examine the trade-off between depth (a narrow high quality position) and breadth (a wide low quality range). In particular, the extent of depth or breadth can be non-monotonic in the strength of competition.
