Pricing and Output Decisions in an Oligopoly Assume you

Pricing and Output Decisions in an Oligopoly

Assume you are the manager of Yabba Cable Company, which provides commercial communication services to the town of Canyon Lake, Texas. Because of licensing restrictions in the market, only your company and two others (Dabba and Zabba) are allowed to operate in this market. The three companies decide to form a cartel and divide the market shares such that each company will provide services that will maximize its profits. The licensing restrictions allow each company to sell as much as it wants at a price ceiling of $2,400. You have the following output and MC data for each company:

Output MC ($)
Q Yabba Dabba Zabba
1,200 2,700 2,800 2,900
2,200 2,600 2,500 2,700
3,200 2,400 2,300 2,500
4,200 2,200 2,200 2,300
5,200 2,300 2,400 2,400
6,200 2,400 2,700 2,500

Calculate the industry output and market share at the current price of $2,400, assuming the prices are stable and unlikely to change.

Assume the current prices in the market are challenged by the regulatory agency, resulting in a new maximum price of $2,200. How will this change the industry output and market share for each company?

Is there any incentive for any company to cheat under either of the conditions in tasks a and b? Why or why not?

Thanks for requesting me. I did similar question with different figures in past. If you would like to use that as model, I will upload it here.

getsetgo :

I could write the answer with new figures, but that will require more time and effort than the price you are offering.


If you answered this question before you can just upload that for me.

Sorry for the confusion.

ok. Please modify the figure in excel.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I already have this exact answer from you from a previous question I asked.
Yes, it is same question. Just figures different.
You want me to rework with new figures?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
That would be helpful if you could but if not I will try to rework it on my own.
I will rework the excel and figures in the report. If you could work little bit on writing, it would be great.
