Abstract

As the State relinquishes its role as coordinator of interorganizational asset transfers, how do interdendent suppliers and users of complementary assets find each other and manage transactions for these assets? This study compares the emerging market structure of two different types of complementary assets in the pharmaceutical industry - new product technology (R&D) and sales and distribution (Wholesaling).
