Measuring Market Power With Variables Other Than Price

  • Hunnicutt, Lynn
  • Bailey, DeeVon
  • Crook, Michelle

We propose and test alternative measures of behavior that may better describe how packers control purchases from feedlots, using confidential data collected by the USDA Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration.
