Antitrust Policy Issues

Antitrust Policy Issues

Author: Patrick Moriati Format: Hardback Release Date: 12/06/2006

The goal of antitrust advocates is to increase the role of competition, assure that competition works in the interests of consumers, and challenge abuses of concentrated economic power in the American and world economy. Antitrust policies were first enacted during the great robber baron era of American economic history. Men such as Rockefeller and Carnegie were forced to split up their companies that monopolised the oil and steel industries of America. Ever since that time antitrust policies have worked to avoid similar situations. These policies cannot always be effective because of developing circumstances. This book presents studies of different antitrust policies and how they adapt to a rapidly changing economic landscape.

Strategic Competition in Oligopolies with Fluctuating Demand

Strategic Competition in Oligopolies with Fluctuating Demand

Author: Leslie Neubecker Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/12/2005

Dynamic oligopolistic competition has implications both for the strategic management of firms and for the design of an effective competition policy. Consequently, the present book considers the issue from a private and social perspective. It discusses the potential pro- and anticollusive effects of long-term business strategies, especially for cooperation and reinvestment in production, financing and management compensation, in markets with fluctuating demand. The method of supergame theory is applied to integrate long-run decisions and different types of demand into the analysis. Aside from its contributions to the theoretical literature, the book provides valuable insights into the design of competition policy. The observed development of prices is an indicator of the extent of collusion in the market and can thereby be used to assess antitrust regulation in certain business areas, and to focus the resources of competition authorities on markets where conditions are conducive to collusion.

Cournot Oligopoly Characterization and Applications

Cournot Oligopoly Characterization and Applications

Author: Andrew F. (University of Iowa) Daughety Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 17/11/2005

Celebrating the 150th anniversary of Cournot's work, which Mark Blaug has characterized as 'a book that for sheer originality and boldness of conception has no equal in the history of economics thought', this volume focuses on the properties and uses of Cournot's model of competition among the few. While there are many issues that Cournot explored in researches into the mathematical principles of the theory of wealth, the topic that he is most readily associated with - and which now is also enjoying a revival - is his model of oligopolistic interaction among firms. This revival of interest in Cournot's model is due largely to increased emphasis by economists on capturing elements of imperfect competition and strategic behavior.
