Price Discrimination with Producer & Consumer Transaction Costs
Economics Bulletin, 2012, vol. 32, issue 1, 370-375
This paper examines the impact of transaction costs on the social efficiency of first-degree price discrimination. Price discrimination requires the producer to expend resources and compels consumers to incur costs. The consideration of producer and consumer transaction costs alters the conditions under which first degree price discrimination enhances social welfare.
