Merger Policy and Efficiency Gains

Marcos Ávalos Bracho ()

Economía Mexicana NUEVA ÉPOCA, 2010, vol. XIX, issue 2, 343-376

Abstract: This paper provides a discussion on mergers and the role played by efficiency gains. By introducing a capacity-constrained Cournot model, we show that one way to extract useful information from merging firms is to design a scheme (requiring that the firms divest some of their assets) that leads to self-selection of the more socially worthwhile mergers.
