Summary/Abstract: In this paper, we investigate relationship between competition and profitability. We define dynamic and static competition and review economic literature about persistence and sources of profits. Moreover, we compare measures of competition based on profitability and relative profits. We argue that profitability measures are more suitable for firms with similar efficiency and for the long–run studies and inter–industry comparisons.
