“Price Discrimination and Economies of Scale in Merger Analysis.” Defining narrow markets in merger cases with price discrimination is sound as a matter of economic theory as well as legal precedent.

Cases involving airlines, milk, and printing  are discussed. Antitrust, Vol. 5, Spring 1991. [Shorter version also appears in International Merger Law, June, 1991].
