Existence of Sustainable Prices for Natural Monopoly Outputs
This paper discusses optimal pricing for a natural monopoly firm when one or more of its markets are open to entry by rival firms. It is argued that optimal prices must be chosen from the set of sustainable prices. Sufficient conditions for sustainable prices to exist are then discussed. Finally some rules are presented for choosing a particular price vector from the set of sustainable prices.
