Tacit Collusion in Oligopolies and Regulated Industries

Tacit Collusion in Oligopolies and Regulated Industries

Preventing tacit collusion is a key objective of regulatory and antitrust authorities. In order to determine what facilitates implicit coordination among competing firms, economic laboratory experiments are utilized to investigate principle characteristics of oligopolistic markets with respect to their propensity to collude tacitly. The main features in focus here are strategic interactions of few competitors and vertically related upstream and downstream markets.
