  2. Recent Developments in Monopoly and Competition Policy

    Recent Developments in Monopoly and Competition Policy

    Edited by George Norman
    The formulation and application of competition policy presents significant challenges. These include showing that proposed mergers are anticompetitive, proving that firms are members of cartels and defending apparently restrictive vertical agreements. The editor has selected key papers that illustrate how far we have come towards meeting these challenges. They provide comprehensive coverage of the theory that underpins competition policy, and of the econometric tests that demonstrate its effects and violations. This timely book will be an invaluable resource to researchers and practitioners alike with an interest in this important subject. Learn More

    Supermarkets and Agri-food Supply Chains

The authors assess the causes and consequences of this transformation, and evaluate the impacts along the whole supply chain. Learn More

  12. The Economics of the Mass Media

    The Economics of the Mass Media

    Edited by Gillian Doyle
    The study of the mass media has flourished over recent decades. Whereas media and communications have traditionally been studied via the lens of sociology or other non-economic disciplines, the perspectives and frameworks offered by economics are now properly recognised as central to our understanding of the organization and behaviour of the mass media – a fact reflected in this unique collection. As more and more economists have turned their attention to media firms and industries, a rich and diverse body of literature has emerged. The articles drawn together in this volume present a survey of the papers that have contributed in important ways to this developing field of enquiry. Learn More

  15. Global Governance of Food and Agriculture Industries

    Global Governance of Food and Agriculture Industries

    Edited by Reba A. Carruth
    In the absence of a global government, the regulation of markets and industries depends on extensive regional and multilateral policy cooperation and regulatory harmonization to protect citizens, farmers and the collective good of nations. As the chapters in this book make clear, the solution to today’s food safety problems depends on more than just setting the right regulatory policy and industry standards. On the contrary, food safety now depends on creating the right kinds of transatlantic, regional and multilateral regulatory institutions and policy networks of food safety authorities to establish and enforce global regulations and industry standards. By focusing on the transatlantic, regional and multilateral regulation and governance of food safety, this book offers valuable insight into one of the most pressing international problems of today and sheds light on much larger questions about governance in a global economy. Chapters cover a wide array of countries and regions, from North and South America to Europe, Africa and Asia. Learn More

  16. Supply Chain Network Economics

    Supply Chain Network Economics

    Anna Nagurney
    This book is the first to bring an economics perspective in a rigorous manner to complex decision-making in the management of supply chains. It provides the foundations for the modeling of the interrelationships among decision-makers in supply chains, ranging from manufacturers, distributors, and retailers, to the consumers, assuming individualized behavior. The models handle both competition and cooperation and provide the resulting product flows and prices in the chains. A unique network economics perspective is brought to the issue, setting the book apart from the numerous management and operations research volumes available. Learn More
