Stable mergers and cartels involving asymmetric firms

  • Lopes, Margarida Catalao
Registered author(s):

    The endogenous formation of coalitions involving asymmetric firms and their stability are analyzed as a function of diferences in eficiency and of the mixed cost of production. Results are derived for cartels as well as for mergers. Players have constant but diferent marginal costs of production and no rule of profit sharing is fixed. The analysis is illustrated for a specific path of collusion. Finally welfare effects are studied and some conclusions are drawn for antitrust policy.
