Economies of scale in european manufacturing revisited by Espen Henriksen( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We test for internal and external economies of scale in European manufacturing, employing a more disaggregated data set than has been used in earlier analyses. We aim to separate externalities from common business cycle effects. Fifteen European manufacturing industries in Germany, France, the UK and Italy are analysed. We focus on economies of scale at three levels: the national industry, the national industrial cluster and the transnational industry. Our results suggest that external economies of scale arising from inter-industry external effects and cross-country effects are less prevalent than increasing returns at the level of the industry and firm. Our results underscore the importance of the level of disaggregation in studies of internal and external economies of scale and argue that the external effects are highly country and industry specific

Economics without borders : economic research for European policy challenges by Laszlo Matyas( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If treated as a single economy, the European Union is the largest in the world, with an estimated GDP of over 14 trillion euros. Despite its size, European economic policy has often lagged behind the rest of the world in its ability to generate growth and innovation. Much of the European economic research itself often trails behind that of the USA, which sets much of the agenda in mainstream economics. This book, also available as open access, bridges the gap between economic research and policymaking by presenting overviews of twelve key areas for future economic policy and research. Written for the economists and policymakers working within European institutions, it uses comprehensive surveys by Europe's leading scholars in economics and European policy to demonstrate how economic research can contribute to good policy decisions, and vice versa, demonstrating how economics research can be motivated and made relevant by hot policy questions. --

Cartels uncovered by Ari Hyytinen( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How many cartels are there? The answer is important in assessing the efficiency of competition policy. We present a Hidden Markov Model that answers the question, taking into account that often we do not know whether a cartel exists in an industry or not. Our model identifies key policy parameters from data generated under different competition policy regimes and may be used with time-series or panel data. We take the model to data from a period of legal cartels - Finnish manufacturing industries 1951 - 1990. Our estimates suggest that by the end of the period, almost all industries were cartelized
Anatomy of cartel contracts by Ari Hyytinen( )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study cartel contracts using data on 18 contract clauses of 109 legal Finnish manufacturing cartels. One third of the clauses relate to raising profits; the others deal with instability through incentive compatibility, cartel organization, or external threats. Cartels use three main approaches to raise profits: Price, market allocation, and specialization. These appear to be substitutes. Choosing one has implications on how cartels deal with instability. Simplifying, we find that large cartels agree on prices, cartels in homogenous goods industries allocate markets, and small cartels avoid competition through specialization

Semicollusion by Frode Steen( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The notion 'semicollusion' refers to situations where firms collude in one (or several) choice variable(s) and compete in others. For example, firms collude on prices and compete on advertising. Although the notion 'semicollusion' is not so often used explicitly, it turns out that the topic is covered extensively in the economic literature. Moreover, the phenomena 'semicollusion' seem to be present in numerous industries. The purpose of this survey is to explain how semicollusion works in theory, describe empirical studies of semicollusion, and discuss the possible welfare effects of semicollusion
