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

25 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 490 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."--Jacket
Market structure and competition policy : game theoretic approaches( Book )

25 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 329 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 )

14 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in English and held by 279 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

"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"--
Whole life appraisal in the construction by Roger Flanagan( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whole life appraisal entails a review not just of the capital costs of a project, but also the running and maintenance costs and is increasingly being required by clients seeking maximum value for money. This new book provides an introduction to the subject, discusses issues such as investment appraisal and life expectancy of components, and shows by means of case studies how to carry out a whole life appraisal
Recent developments in monopoly and competition policy( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 81 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

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
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 52 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
Oligopoly deregulation and the taxation of commodities by Gilbert E Metcalf( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 52 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
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 23 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
