Behavioral Antitrust

Stephen Martin ()

Purdue University Economics Working Papers from Purdue University, Department of Economics

Abstract: In this chapter, I review the rational economic man model and contrast it with evidence of bounded rationality that has emerged since the last quarter of the previous century. I discuss the implications of bounded rationality for research in industrial economics, with particular attention to the analysis of predation, collusion, and entry. I conclude by drawing implications for the antitrust rules toward dominant firm behavior that come out of the Matsushita and Brooke Group decisions.
