Abstract

The perfect competition model is not the only model which we can use in analyzing the markets.Although it is quite clear that competition laws are based on it, there are not sufficient reasons to confirm its suitability for this enterprise. We raise the question of realism implied in concepts like ‘homogeneous products’ and ‘numerous participants’, and then we try to portrait the world as it is stated in the perfect neoclassical model. The discussion has powerful insights given by the Austrian methodology which in time proved to be a strong and efficient competitor for the neoclassical paradigm. The perfect competition model is opposed to free competition model, or the competition unhampered by any violent restrictions imposed to entrepreneurs in the process of satisfying the consumers.
