Product description

From the Back Cover

Rooted firmly in the real world, Industrial Organisation: Competition, Strategy, Policy provides a comprehensive and coherent overview of the subject.

Its trademark case-based and example-driven approach continues with verve in this new third edition. Case studies from banking, media, movies, consumer electronics, pharmaceuticals, professional sports, and information and communication technologies reinforce the text’s strong analysis of the economics of business and industry from a European perspective.

New to this edition: 

·        Re-organization of Part  I of the book to include new chapters on managerial and behavioural theories of the firm, and transaction costs, agency and resource-based theories of the firm.

·        New chapter on mergers and strategic alliances.

·        Extended coverage of vertical integration and vertical restraints in two chapters.

·        Revised and updated coverage of many theoretical and empirical topics, including new sections on price dispersion and competition policy. 

·        Further additions and updates to an already extensive and popular bibliography.

·        New case studies, many of which focus on current issues and controversies:

o       Price discrimination by cinemas

o       Online auctions

o       Vertical restraints in pay-TV

o       Predatory pricing of internet services

o       Bid rigging in the construction industry

o       Ticket prices for Premiership football

o       Fees for audit services

o       Innovation in consumer electronics

o       Cross-border bank mergers in Europe
