Copyright©2004 South-Western 15 Monopoly Einokun
Copyright © 2004 South-Western While a competitive firm is a price taker, a monopoly firm is a price maker.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western A firm is considered a monopoly if... it is the sole seller of its product. its product does not have close substitutes.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western WHY MONOPOLIES ARISE The fundamental cause of monopoly is barriers to entry (Aðgangshindranir eru ein grundvallar orsök einokunar).
Copyright © 2004 South-Western WHY MONOPOLIES ARISE Barriers to entry have three sources: Ownership of a key resource. The government gives a single firm the exclusive right to produce some good. Costs of production make a single producer more efficient than a large number of producers.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Monopoly Resources Although exclusive ownership of a key resource is a potential source of monopoly, in practice monopolies rarely arise for this reason. Þótt eignarhald á lykil auðlind (sem útilokar aðgang annarra að auðlindinni) sé hugsanleg ástæða einokunar, þá kemur einokun sjaldnast til af þessari ástæðu.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Government-Created Monopolies Governments may restrict entry (hamla innkomu fyrirtækja á markað) by giving a single firm the exclusive right to sell a particular good in certain markets.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Government-Created Monopolies Patent (einkaleyfi) and copyright (útgáfuréttur / höfundaréttur) laws are two important examples of how government creates a monopoly.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Natural Monopolies An industry is a natural monopoly when a single firm can supply a good or service to an entire market at a smaller cost than could two or more firms.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Natural Monopolies A natural monopoly arises when there are economies of scale over the relevant range of output.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western HOW MONOPOLIES MAKE PRODUCTION AND PRICING DECISIONS Monopoly versus Competition Monopoly Is the sole producer Is a price maker Reduces price to increase sales Competitive Firm Is one of many producers Is a price taker Sells as much or as little at same price
Copyright © 2004 South-Western THE WELFARE COST OF MONOPOLY In contrast to a competitive firm, the monopoly charges a price above the marginal cost. From the standpoint of consumers, this high price makes monopoly undesirable. However, from the standpoint of the owners of the firm, the high price makes monopoly very desirable.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western PUBLIC POLICY TOWARD MONOPOLIES Government responds to the problem of monopoly in one of four ways. Making monopolized industries more competitive. Regulating the behavior of monopolies. Turning some private monopolies into public enterprises. Doing nothing at all.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Increasing Competition with Antitrust Laws Antitrust laws (löggjöf gegn einokun og hringamyndun) are a collection of statutes (reglugerðasöfn) aimed at curbing monopoly power (setja umgjörð um einokunarvald). Antitrust laws give government various ways to promote competition (stuðla að samkeppni). They allow government to prevent mergers (koma í veg fyrir samruna). They allow government to break up companies (kljúfa upp fyrirtæki). They prevent companies from performing activities that make markets less competitive (standa í starfsemi sem leiðir til minni samkeppni á markaði).
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Regulation Government may regulate the prices that the monopoly charges. The allocation of resources will be efficient if price is set to equal marginal cost.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Public Ownership Rather than regulating a natural monopoly that is run by a private firm, the government can run the monopoly itself (e.g. in the United States, the government runs the Postal Service).
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Doing Nothing Government can do nothing at all if the market failure is deemed small compared to the imperfections of public policies.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western PRICE DISCRIMINATION Price discrimination (verðmismunun) is the business practice of selling the same good at different prices to different customers, even though the costs for producing for the two customers are the same.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western PRICE DISCRIMINATION Examples of Price Discrimination Movie tickets Airline prices
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Summary Policymakers can respond to the inefficiencies of monopoly behavior with antitrust laws (lög gegn hringamyndun), regulation of prices, or by turning the monopoly into a government-run enterprise. If the market failure is deemed small, policymakers may decide to do nothing at all.
Copyright © 2004 South-Western Summary Monopolists can raise their profits by charging different prices to different buyers based on their willingness to pay.
