|Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/130||Date:||2002||Abstract:||We use rich brand level retail data to demonstrate that the firm size distribution in Carbonated Soft Drinks is mainly an outcome of the degree to which firms own a portfolio of brands across segments of the market, and not from performance within segments. In addition, while the number of firms in each segment is limited by segment size relative to sunk cost and competition in a segment, idiosyncratic firm effects make some firms more likely to participate in any given segment. This feature of the industry is the key to modelling firm size distribution in Carbonated Soft Drinks.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Economic and Social Research Institute||Journal:||Economic and Social Review||Volume:||33||Issue:||1||Start page:||43||End page:||54||Copyright (published version):||Copyright held by the ERSI 2002||Subject LCSH:||Business enterprises--Size
