Example text

But suppose the incumbent firm’s plant uses up the best location available, and suppose there are substitutes to the vital input? Natural barriers make up the second general class of entry barriers. The classic example is that of an “increasing returns” or “high fixed costs” monopoly, such as railroads, electricity suppliers, and water suppliers. The phenomenon of a falling average cost through the scale of production appears in each of these examples. 6 illustrates the cost curves for a high-fixed-costs monopoly.

Exclusive dealing contracts create barriers by foreclosing the market to rivals. For example, if firm A has an exclusivity contract with the only supplier of a vital input, it would be difficult for a rival to enter and compete against firm A. Product tying also tends to exclude 16 Economics rivals by forcing them to enter at two levels (the tying and tied product) in order to compete against the seller of the bundled product. 8 On one extreme is the expansive view suggested in the work of Joe Bain,9 and on the other the view, suggested in the work of Harold Demsetz,10 that the government creates the only real entry barriers – and even then the concept is troubling in Demsetz’s view because government necessarily plays an important role in defining property rights.

The first is proof of an agreement and intent to violate the law. The second is the so-called duality requirement, that there were at least two parties to the agreement. The third is a famous nonrequirement: the government does not have to prove that the parties either carried out or had the power to carry out the criminal act. Since the word conspiracy appears in Section 1 of the Sherman Act, the foregoing elements are part of antitrust conspiracy doctrine.
