If some suppliers choose to price competitively, they create no overcharge. Cartel Histories 45 if any exists. For producers, the contraction in industry output means operating at suboptimal levels or exiting the industry. In either case, some labor and plant resources will lie idle. This monopoly loss is called the deadweight loss. 1, the dead-weight loss is typically many times smaller than the overcharge. Empirical Studies There are hundreds empirical studies of the price effects of cartels.
A classic example of tacit collusion is price followership by firms that take note of public price announcements of leading firms. Conscious parallelism can evolve through “unspoken” communication (Werden 2004). Cartel A cartel is an association of two or more legally independent firms that explicitly agree to coordinate their prices or output for the purpose of increasing their collective profits. The members of a cartel must knowingly and intentionally conspire to raise (lower) the price of the product that they sell (buy) above (below) the price that natural market forces would cause in the absence of the cartel’s actions.
Conjectures may be formed independently by merely observing rivals’ actual choices through time as market conditions vary or cooperatively by an overt agreement or by signaling intent. Collusion is one cooperative strategy available to those firms in an oligopoly game. Mathematical game theories vary greatly in the degree of realism embodied in the assumptions (Pearce 1992). Early models assumed that the payoffs were fixed and known with certainty; more recent models allow for variable-sum payoffs in which the total profits can rise or fall as the firms choose alternative strategies.
