Abstract

The paper presents a logical decision tree structure to screen industries for possible malfunctioning using a strategic set of indicators reflecting potential, international and internal competition. Based on this conditional combination of a limited set of important indicators associated with limited competition and market malfunctioning in industries, we classify industries into different groups with a low or high probability that market malfunctioning is present.
