This paper considers a Cournot duopoly model assuming isoelastic demand and smooth cost functions with built-in capacity limits. When the firms cannot obtain positive profits they are assumed to choose small "stand-by" outputs rather than closing down, in order to avoid substantial fitting up costs when market conditions turn out more favorable. It is shown that the model provides chaotic behavior. In particular, the system has positive topological entropy and hence the map is chaotic in the Li-Yorke sense. Moreover, chaos is not only topological but also physically observable.
