On the welfare analysis of a cross-border merger


  • Tarun Kabiraj
  • Manas Chaudhuri


We provide a comparative welfare analysis of domestic and cross-national mergers. We focus, in particular, on the importance of possible synergies in mergers, the existing market structure and the bargaining power of the merging firms (in the case of a cross-border merger).
