The empirical analysis of merger remedies’ influence on prices in Russia

Journal of US-China Public Administration. 2013. Vol. 10. No. 9. P. 834-850.
Kalinina Maria.

This article explores how behavioral merger remedies of the Federal Antimonopoly Service of the Russian Federation affects the price level. The main assumption implies that issuance of price remedies by antimonopoly authority may cause downward price rigidity as a result of ratchet effect or tacit collusion. The article includes analysis of 11 mergers with behavioral remedies during the period 2006-2010 and price dynamics for 14 products. In the course of the research the hypothesis that the issuance of price remedies brought about downward price rigidity was not confirmed.
