  • We introduce the possibility of unilaterally giving profits away to the rival in different oligopolistic contexts. We find that this strategy may be profitable in some circumstances, thus providing a context for
    partial tacit collusion in one-shot oligopolistic interactions. Although
    the strategy in itself may look unrealistic, we argue that it may be
    hidden behind a more complicated relation of the firms.
