Effective price-matching: A comment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Corts [Economic Lett. 47 (1995) 417] showed that when allowing for price-beating policies in addition to price-matching policies, the competitive outcome prevails in lieu of monopoly pricing. I show by expanding the strategy set further to include effective price strategies, the possibility of monopoly pricing is restored.
