The New industrial economics : recent developments in industrial organization, oligopoly, and game theory by Manfredi La Manna( Book )

22 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This modern up to date text presents for the first time an integrated account of industrial economics, oligopoly and game theory." "The New Industrial Economics focuses on the key issues including entry deterrence, product differentiation, pricing policy, strategic behaviour, research and development. These important areas are examined in the light of the most recent developments in game theory. Each chapter is designed to present the results of frontier research in a relatively non-technical manner suitable for intermediate level undergraduate students." "The book will rapidly become established as required reading for courses on industrial economics and oligopoly."--BOOK JACKET
Industrial organization : contemporary theory & practice by Lynne Pepall( Book )

40 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This textbook brings modern I/O analysis to the undergraduate level. Consistent with modern analysis, the authors focus explicitly on the nature of strategic interaction and makeextensive use of game theoretic tools. At the same time, they never lose sight of the policymotivation behind much IO analysis. Formal analysis is combined with many practicalapplications, and the presentation does not assume familiarity with calculus, rather it relieson the ability to work through algebraic equations
Market structure and competition policy : game theoretic approaches( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work applies modern advances in game theory to the analysis of competition policy and develops some of the theoretical and policy concerns associated with the pioneering work of Louis Phlips. Containing contributions by scholars from Europe and North America, the book observes a common theme in the relationship between the regulatory regime and market structure. Since the inception of the new industrial organization, economists have developed a better understanding of how real world markets operate. These results have particular relevance to the design and application of anti-trust policy. Analyses indicate that picking the most competitive framework in the short run may be detrimental to competition and welfare in the long run, concentrating the attention of policy makers on the impact on the long-run market structure. This book should provide interesting reading for graduate students of industrial and managerial economics as well as researchers and policy makers
Economies of scale, transport costs, and location by George Norman( Book )

11 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The presence of nonconvexities does severe damage to conventional theories of the firm and of the individual. The essential contribution of location theory, however, is in a world in which there are such nonconvexities. If resources are distributed evenly and the usual convexity assumptions made, then economic activity would be distributed evenly; there would be no concentration of pro duction. Thus the statement that is usually made, that the standard results carry over to a world in which there is spatial choice, is too weak and fails to capture the essence oflocation theory. Nevertheless, we must also concede that, while the introduction of the spatial dimension is interesting and fruitful when (perhaps only when) there are non convexities, space should not be thought of as a panacea whereby problems those associated with economies of scale, for example -can be made to disap pear. There is no guarantee, for example, that production units will be operated in convex regions of their total cost curves, even if they are constrained to oper ate in a 'space economy'. These considerations led to the conclusion that the role of spatial choice and the determinants of such choice would be best analysed by case study. This book is one such study. It is based on my doctoral dissertation at the University of Cambridge, fmanced by a grant from the Social Science Research Council

Contemporary industrial organization : a quantitative approach by Lynne Pepall( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Managers who are looking to gain a better understanding of today's industrial environment will appreciate this text. It offers a comprehensive examination of the field. Empirical applications are integrated throughout the chapters to provide relevant examples. Discussions are included on price discrimination as it relates to monopolies and product varieties. Basic models of imperfect competition are presented. Entry deterrents and price fixing are also examined in more detail. Managers will then learn how to apply this information as they build a successful organization"
Recent developments in monopoly and competition policy( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Competition policy aims to prevent anticompetitive agreements and mergers, limiting the abusive exercise of market power. The formulation and application of this policy presents significant challenges, which include showing that proposed mergers are anticompetitive, proving that firms are members of cartels and defending apparently restrictive vertical agreements. For this insightful volume, the editor has selected key papers which illustrate how far we have come towards meeting these challenges. They provide comprehensive developmental coverage of the theory that underpins and justifies competition policy, and of the econometric tests that demonstrate its effects and violations. This timely book will be an invaluable resource to researchers and practitioners alike with an interest in this important subject

Oligopoly deregulation and the taxation of commodities by Gilbert E Metcalf( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine the interplay between market structure and the form that commodity taxation should take in a world in which firms produce differentiated products and so are able to exert some degree of market power. Our analysis takes explicit account of two important recent developments that carry significant implications for market structure and so for the appropriate design and effectiveness of commodity taxation: market deregulation and technological change. In the presence of price discrimination, we find that tax policy loses much of its effectiveness at serving as a substitute for direct regulation. Moreover, in cases where taxes can influence market structure, subsides rather than taxes may be required to achieve optimum market structure
Oligopoly deregulation in general equilibrium : a tax neutralization result by Gilbert E Metcalf( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine the interplay between market structure and the form that commodity taxation should take in a general equilibrium model in which firms produce differentiated products and so are able to exert market power. Our analysis takes account of two important recent developments that affect market structure and so the appropriate design and effectiveness of commodity taxation: market deregulation and technological change. When market deregulation facilitates price discrimination, we find that tax policy is ineffective as a means to influence market structure. We further show that when tax rates are set optimally government is able to neutralize the potentially detrimental welfare impact of restrictive entry conditions in the differentiated product sector. Finally, we present conditions under which price discrimination is welfare improving
Dictionary of industrial organization by George Norman( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'From Abatement to Zone pricing, the reader will find here succinctly yet rigorously defined every concept the IO literature has used in the recent years. The natural place for this book is in the reference section of the library, and teachers of courses in IO, Industrial Economics, Imperfect markets and so on will find that placing it into the reading list will ensure students are in a position not to misuse technical language with very little effort. To sum up, this is an essential text, in both meanings of the word: it captures the essence of the discipline, and it will be indispensable to its practitioners.' --Gianni De Fraja, University of Nottingham, UK and University of Rome "Tor Vergata", Italy. 'The entries of the Dictionary encompass the development of the field of industrial organization, from its origins with the industry-centric structure-conduct-performance paradigm through the much more firm-centric approach of game theory and insights drawn from contract theory, with its emphasis on the incentives facing individuals. It also touches on the development of empirical methods and the symbiotic relation between industrial organization and antitrust/regulatory policy. The entries that follow expand on this introduction, placing specific industrial organization topics and concepts in the context of the field.' --Stephen Martin, Purdue University, US. ' ... an extremely useful reference --an especially valuable resource for practitioners and policymakers in antitrust, and in industrial organization more generally.' --Paul Klemperer, University of Oxford, UK and former Member, UK Competition Commission. This unique and original Dictionary presents a fully inclusive compilation of foundational concepts, models, methodologies, and applications in the field of industrial organization. It encompasses myriad facets of the topics, from its early days of conception through to modern theoretical and empirical methodologies. The Dictionary balances concise explanation with comprehensive coverage, incorporating concepts such as the structure-conduct-performance paradigm, the development of the theory of the firm, the foundational contributions of game theory and models of strategic interaction. More recent advances in organization theory and managerial economics are also included, as well as current advances in econometrics as applied to industrial organization, and applications to regulation and antitrust analysis. The Dictionary of Industrial Organization will prove an indispensible reference tool for anyone involved with industrial economics at any level, including academics, researchers, students, consultants and practitioners
Product differentiation and film programming choice : do first-run movie theatres show the same films? by Darlene C Chisholm( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We present an empirical analysis of product differentiation using a new dynamic panel data set on film programming choice in a major U.S. metropolitan motion-pictures exhibition market. Using these data, we compute two measures of film programming choice which allow us to investigate the determinants of strategic product differentiation in a multi-characteristics space. Our evidence is consistent with the idea that the degree of product differentiation between theatre pairs reflects a balance between strategic concerns and contractual constraints. Similarity in one dimension is offset by differentiation in others. Finally, we find that ownership matters: theatres under common ownership make more similar programming choices than theatres with different owners
