# Monopolistic and Bertrand (Nash) Competition

Can we view the monopolistic competition equilibrium (a la Dixit-Stigliz) as the limit case of a Bertrand competition with an infinite number of firms providing differentiated products, where the resulting equilibrium is a Nash equilibrium in prices?

I am looking for references on this topic. Thanks.
