Fusiones horizontales que reducen los precios


  • Germán Coloma


Este trabajo desarrolla un modelo de equilibrio de un mercado con diferenciación horizontal de productos en el cual las empresas fijan los precios de las variedades que proveen y, en ciertos casos, alguna de ellas actúa como líder de precios. Dados esos elementos, el trabajo explora qué condiciones deben darse para que una fusión o adquisición horizontal que aumenta la concentración del mercado lleve a un equilibrio con menores precios que los que se daban antes de dicha fusión o adquisición. La clave para que esto acontezca es que el cambio de estructura sirva para romper la situación de liderazgo previamente vigente, y que el nuevo grupo que se consolida no incremente sustancialmente su poder de mercado.
