Given the harm that can be caused by monopoly power, some eminent antitrust scholars and policymakers have argued that it is best to prevent firms from possessing substantial market power. (48) That is, dominance itself should be prohibited.
It was held that the applicant did not have substantial market power because it faced competition from numerous other game manufacturers.
Legislation will also introduce a new license regime for airports with substantial market power, backed by financial penalties to bring the industry in line with other economic regulators.
They enjoy substantial market power yet the current railroad regulatory system regards them as incapable of both making needed capital investments and remaining healthy.
The estimates and counterfactual experiments using the estimated model yield the following results: first, there is no evidence that firms in the primary market have substantial market power in this industry; second, the counterfactual experiment shows that inflationary and deflationary expectations about production-cost trends have asymmetric effects on the market power of condominium producers: the increase in their markup when cost inflation is anticipated is significantly higher than the decrease in the markup when the same magnitude of cost deflation is anticipated.
