Firm-Specific Cost Savings And Market Power, Bart Wilson, Douglas Davis Aug 2014

Firm-Specific Cost Savings And Market Power, Bart Wilson, Douglas Davis

Bart J Wilson

We report a policy experiment that illustrates a potential problem of using historical pass-through rates as a means of predicting the competitive consequences of projected firm-specific cost savings in antitrust contexts, particularly in merger analysis. The effects of cost savings on welfare can vary vastly, depending on how the savings affect the industry supply schedule. In a capacity-constrained price-setting oligopoly, we observe that cost savings can overwhelm behaviorally salient market power incentives when the savings affect marginal (high cost) units. However, cost savings of the same magnitude on an infra-marginal unit leave market power unchanged.

The Northeast Asian Seas: The Regional Legal Instruments Of Cooperation For Marine Environment And Sustainable Development, Young K. Kim Dec 2000

The Northeast Asian Seas: The Regional Legal Instruments Of Cooperation For Marine Environment And Sustainable Development, Young K. Kim

Young K Kim

The Asia Pacific region is characterized by a number of features which give prominence and unique significance in relation with the marine environment issues. As a result of rapid growth in population, economy, and political maturity, marine environment protection and resource management have emerged as a vital task for the individual nations, as well as the Asia Pacific region as a whole. The concerned riparian States of the Northeast Asian Seas have been fully aware of the immediate relevance of the target conception, "the sustainable development" for their economic development and environment policy. Since 1992 Rio UNCED, they have endeavored ...


Should Courts Deduct Non-Legal Sanctions From Damages?, Robert D. Cooter, Ariel Porat Dec 2000

Should Courts Deduct Non-Legal Sanctions From Damages?, Robert D. Cooter, Ariel Porat

Robert Cooter

When legal and social norms regulate the same behavior, an act can trigger both legal and non-legal sanctions. Should courts deduct the non-legal sanction suffered by the wrongdoer from damages owed to the victim? We provide the answer for a legal system that seeks to minimize social costs. Non-legal sanctions typically harm the wrongdoer and benefit other people. In principle, courts should avoid over-deterring wrongdoers by deducting the benefit of the non-legal sanction from compensatory damages. In practice, instead of deducting the benefit of the non-legal sanction to other people, courts should deduct the burden on the wrongdoer. Deducting the ...

The Principles Of Justice, In Symposium, Propter Honoris Respectum: John Finnis, Richard W. Wright Nov 2000

The Principles Of Justice, In Symposium, Propter Honoris Respectum: John Finnis, Richard W. Wright

Richard W. Wright

Many theorists claim that justice is a question-begging concept that has no inherent substantive content. They point to disagreements among justice theorists themselves about basic aspects of the justice theory, such as the nature of corrective justice and the distinction between it and distributive justice, as even further reason to dismiss the concept of justice or to fill it with their preferred theoretical content. Yet most persons perceive that the concept of justice is not an empty shell. Since ancient times it has been thought to encompass not merely a formal equality (treating like cases alike), but also a substantive ...


A Century Of Change In Personal Injury Law, Stephen D. Sugarman Nov 2000

A Century Of Change In Personal Injury Law, Stephen D. Sugarman

Stephen D Sugarman

The 20th century witnessed enormous change in American personal injury law. Over the past 100 years, torts has emerged out of a largely ineffective backwater of the law. Today, tort doctrine has coalesced around a robust law of negligence, anchored not only in contemporary concerns about fairness, but also in considerations of loss spreading and safety promotion. Over the course of the 20th century, cultural change, change in the legal and other professions, changes in civil procedure and evidence law, the development of liability insurance, and more have made it both much easier and far more natural for accident victims ...

The Owned Public Domain: The Constitutional Right Not To Be Excluded – Or The Supreme Court Chose The Right Breakfast Cereal In Kellogg V. National Biscuit Co., Malla Pollack

Malla Pollack

Before the rise of law and economics, the Supreme Court decided several cases involving patent holders' attempts to use trademark doctrines to slow down competitors after the expiration of their utility patents; in each of these cases, the Court enforced a public right to use material in the public domain. To give one famous example, Kellogg Co. v. National Biscuit Co., the "shredded wheat case," came to the Court after the expiration of a product and process utility patent on that once-innovative breakfast cereal. The Court held that a competitor could freely copy the product's name and its well ...
