Alive and Kicking: Collusion Theories in Merger Analysis at the Federal Trade Commission (reprint)
CPI Journal, 2012, vol. 8
This paper undertakes a systematic review of 75 merger decisions to identify the conditions that increase the likelihood of a collusion finding. Standard structural concerns are readily identified, while behavioral factors defy characterization. The results of the analysis also support a Folk Theorem in which structural concerns are validated with some type of performance evidence. Malcolm B. Coate (Federal Trade Commission)
