It was analysed by the UOKiK in its explanatory proceedings concerning fuel prices at local gas stations28 discontinued czarnu the end, when the uniformization retail prices was found to be the result of parallel actions of gas station owners or price following.
The economics of competition law clearly differentiates between interdependence of market behaviour in an oligopolistic market and agreements between competitors that restrict competition by fixing prices, production quotas, market.
For example, Herbert Hovenkamp states that the application of competition law is necessary if administrative intervention into market processes is economically justified9. The structural explanation of the monopoly phenomenon, associated with the Harvard School, consists of the application of a Structure — Conduct — Performance paradigm.
Economic Approach to Counteracting Cartels
If the analysis of noojszewska policy and of the optimization of distributional logistics indicates that it was impossible to establish the existence of a cartel regulating these areas, then the presumption on fixing production quotas would be illogical.
Although this type of information flow can facilitate price-fixing agreements, it simultaneously improves market transparency for consumers.
In the second stage, an analysis of the trade policy of the companies participating in an alleged cartel is undertaken and its consistency assessed with an operating scheme of a cartel agreement described in the economics of competition law. For instance, if a company using its dominant position in a relevant market increases its prices above the level found in a competitive market, then the high level of monopolistic yield encourages market entry by potential competitors. Oligopoly is an intermediate form between perfect competition and structural monopoly.
Economic dimension of cartels II. Of direct relevance to cartel proceedings is the fact that the Act of treats the intention to restrict or eliminate competition in a relevant market purpose of an agreement as an action infringing competition law, irrespective of its implementation effect of an agreement.
The explanation of this phenomenon may be found in the concept of co-opetition, according to which entrepreneurs are willing and should co-operate in the process of added value creation, while they should compete in the process of added value distribution in the relevant market Theory and Practice, Cambridgep. The interdependence theories of oligopolistic markets were developed further by the game theory.
This is essential for increasing market transparency which may be facilitated by the following factors: It creates transparency of the market and competitors may know their prices without price collusion. Cartels may be organised in different ways. Market decisions made by one oligopolist influence the decisions made by others. This frequently proves a major barrier for the application of an economic analysis.
First, price-fixing is effective when: They are considered to be negative because the achievement of such business goals may restrict competition and go against social interests7. Widely discussed in literature, this is justified from the economic perspective by the role competition plays in achieving resource allocation and the effectiveness of firms acting under competitive pressure which in turn holds back consumer prices, maintaining or increasing social wellbeing2.
Williamson, Markets and Hierarchies. Gronowski, Ustawa antymonopolowa — komentarz, Warszawap.
The Bertrand model assumes the existence of reserves in production capacity, as the purpose of the price game between competitors is customer interception. Establishing the existence of cartel facilitating factors is considered to be the purpose of the relevant market analysis which nojsezwska the economic approach to determine: The economic concept of market failures justifies the implementation of competition law in nojszewsia to limit or eliminate negative external effects of business activities.
Theory and Practice, Cambridge What are the economic grounds for such severe punishment? Economists do not see cartels through the prism of written or oral agreements but evaluate them from the point of view of the market structure and the strategy executed by their alleged members.
This may be an exchange of trade, investment, czarnu and financial information classified as private — directed only to competitors Information about fuel prices at gas stations is public and displayed on pylons easily seen from a distance. How important is an economic analysis for the results of anti-cartel proceedings considering that they are prohibited per se, that is, absolutely and unconditionally?
Principle and Execution, Harvard Actual prices result from negotiations among sellers and buyers. Principle and Execution, Harvard The economic theory, used by the economics of competition law, has at its disposal many concepts and instruments for the evaluation of market effects of an identified collusion or for excluding the existence of such an agreement on a given relevant market.
In a situation when an agreement did nojszeqska affect the market, because it lacked discipline in observing its terms and sanctions for its breach or due to other conditions unfavourable to the execution of the agreement, then according to the law such a cartel has to be prohibited by the UOKiK but with a possibility of a substantial reduction of the usual fines they csarny be merely symbolic.
Which methods nojszdwska it possible to differentiate cartels from competition in oligopolistic markets including economic and econometric analyses?
Calaméo – Economic Approach to Counteracting Cartels
Similarly, a contribution to the financing of a sectorial association engaged in information exchange, or facilitating such exchange during the meetings of its members, is treated as costs of information collection. Hovenkamp, The Antitrust Enterprise. In reality, a conflict between business goals and competition law principles is often apparent.
