Cartel Formal Agreement

In the economic literature, many studies focus on how companies manage to stabilize cartels (Harrington 2006). Hinloopen 2006; Ashenfelter and Graddy 2005; Spagnolo 2000; Savings 1994; Stigler 1968). Economists generally view cartels as “inherently unstable” and focus on incentives for fraud and retaliation to prevent fraud. The image of cartels as “inherently unstable” is influential and underlies competition law and competition policy. As a result, the legal debate focuses on increasing regulatory pressure to destabilize existing agreements. This inherent instability is not consistent with empirical evidence of the duration of the agreements. Cartels have been around for years – even decades (Levenstein and Suslow, 2006; Leslie 2008; Connor 2010; Connor and Helmers 2007) – and they often represent a relatively large number of participating companies (Connor 2010). The criminalization project therefore seems ill-informed by a good understanding of the functioning of corporate cartels (Beaton-Wells and Haines 2010; Harding 2006; Harding and Joshua 2003: 284).

It was very simple. Offer name, name of [antitrust] suppliers, their prices and the name of the offer. The parties to the concrete offer maintained the valuation and noted the price at which the offer was sold. For example, if there were three suppliers, one would have received 70,000 euros of work, the other 80,000 euros and the third 30,000 euros; then would be the next project for the 30,000 euros. The lowest target on the list was at the top. (5) Ayres, I. (1987).
