Oligopoly Pricing

Titel: Oligopoly Pricing: Old Ideas and New Tools
Schrijver: Xavier Vives
Taal: Engels
Uitgeverij: The MIT Press
Uitvoering: Paperback, 448 pages
ISBN-13: 978-0262720403

The "oligopoly problem"--the question of how prices are formed when the market contains only a few competitors--is one of the more persistent problems in the history of economic thought. In this book Xavier Vives applies a modern game-theoretic approach to develop a theory of oligopoly pricing.

Vives begins by relating classic contributions to the field--including those of Cournot, Bertrand, Edgeworth, Chamberlin, and Robinson--to modern game theory. In his discussion of basic game-theoretic tools and equilibrium, he pays particular attention to recent developments in the theory of supermodular games. The middle section of the book, an in-depth treatment of classic static models, provides specialized existence results, characterizations of equilibria, extensions to large markets, and an analysis of comparative statics with a view toward applied work. The final chapters examine commitment issues, entry, information transmission, and collusion using a variety of tools: two-stage games, the modeling of competition under asymmetric information and mechanism design theory, and the theory of repeated and dynamic games, including Markov perfect equilibrium and differential games.

Corporate Governance

Titel: Corporate Governance: Theoretical and Empirical Perspectives
Schrijverr: Xavier Vives
Taal: Engels
Uitgeverij: Cambridge University Press
Uitvoering: Paperback, 246 pages
ISBN-13: 978-0521032032

Corporate governance is an active area of research and public debate. The recent generalization of "shareholder value" ideas and institutional investment, the establishment of codes of best practice for boards of directors, and the controversy about whether market oriented or bank/relations oriented systems are better for economic performance provide cogent examples. The volume takes stock of the most recent research in the topic, criticizes the standard agency view, and presents new ideas and analysis about the role of competition, the political economy of corporate governance, and the effects of different systems on growth and performance.
