Market concentration and nonlinear pricing in European banking

Antonis Michis ()

Journal of Economics and Business, 2016, vol. 85, issue C, 1-12

Abstract: An econometric test is proposed to show the existence of nonlinear pricing in the European market for loans. The test incorporates a measure of industry concentration to examine the impact of market structure on the use of nonlinear pricing tactics by banks. Econometric results using a panel dataset consisting of seven European countries suggest that nonlinear pricing is associated with increasing monopoly power in European banking.
