Market Dynamics in Supply Chains: The Impact of Globalisation and Consolidation on Food Companie's Mark-ups
AbstractThis paper examines whether ownership and increased competitive pressure affect food retailersâ€™ market power, analysing whether all actors involved in the food supply chain deviate from the pricing behaviour that exists under perfect competition. A method proposed by Roeger (1995) is used to estimate price-cost margins, relaxing the assumptions of perfect competition and constant returns to scale. [Discussion Paper 273/2011].
