About this product
- DescriptionMost readers are familiar with the concept of a mopoly. A mopolist is the only seller of a good or service for which there are t good substitutes. Ecomists and policy makers are concerned about mopolies because they lead to higher prices and lower output. The topic of this book is mopsony, the ecomic condition in which there is one buyer of a good or service. It is a common misunderstanding that if mopolists raise prices, then mopsonists must lower them. It is true that a mopsonist may force sellers to sell to them at lower prices, but this does t mean consumers are better off as a result. This book explains why mopsonists can be harmful and the way law has developed to respond to these harms.
