Silberberg  and Pauwels  have produced and clarified seminal results in the comparative statics of single-agent classical optimization problems. This paper extends Pauwels’ method to derive analogous results for stable Nath equilibria in a subclass of the widely used class of concave orthogonal games defined by Rosen . Application of these results to cost curve shifts in the asymmetric Cournot oligopoly immediately uncovers apparently new comparative statics results.
