    Strategic Behaviour in Network Industries

    Ernst ten Heuvelhof, Martin de Jong, Mirjam Kars, Helen Stout

The expected benefits such as lower prices, innovation and better services fail to materialize, often because the number of competitors is low. The authors demonstrate how strategic actor behaviour of one or more of the firms involved can help explain these disappointing results. Learn More
