Abstract

We consider a newsvendor game with two substitutable products which are sold by two retailers with loss-averse preferences under multiple mental accounts. The game theory is used to find the retailers’ optimal order quantity. Given the order quantity of one retailer, there exists a unique optimal order quantity of another retailer. And it shows that substitution, degree of loss aversion, shortage cost, degree of substitution and salvage value have an impact on optimal order quantity. Further, the Nash equilibrium is unique in the loss-averse newsvendor game. There exists a threshold of loss aversion coefficient which the effect of loss aversion dominates the effect of competition. Numerical experiments are conducted to illustrate our results.
