About the Authors
  • This book is an important collection of papers published over the past ten years in American and European journals. Part 1 explains market structure as a function of sunk costs and market size. Part 2 illustrates the central role of pricing schemes (including parallel pricing, delivered pricing and competition clauses) in sustaining equilibrium outcomes in oligopolistic markets. Parts 3 and 4 give a game-theoretic foundation to competition policy and merger control. Louis Phlips offers a comprehensive introduction to the text in which he very carefully explains the reasoning behind his choice of papers, and provides a superb synthesis of the material.

    • Fills a gap in the market for an applied industrial economics text, most present texts are theoretical in focus
    • Louis Phlips is the leading writer in this area - achieved sales of over 11,000 with his three previous books for CUP
    • Big name contributors, providing accessible analysis
