<rdf:RDF xmlns:dcterms="" xmlns:dc="" xmlns:rdf="" xmlns:bibo="" xmlns:dspace="" xmlns:foaf="" xmlns:void="" xmlns:xsd="" > <rdf:Description rdf:about=""> <dcterms:abstract xml:lang="eng">This paper studies the exertion of market power in large buyer groups confronting an incumbent monopolist and a potential market entrant in a repeated trade situation. In the experiment, buyer power can either occur as demand withholding when only the incumbent is present in the market, or it can take the form of buying at higher prices from the entrant in order to foster future re-entry. Comparing markets with groups of two and eight buyers, we find that both forms are prevalent irrespective of the number of buyers. However, a control treatment shows that seemingly strategic behavior is better explained by inequality aversion of the buyers towards the two different sellers.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Buyer power in large buyer groups?</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Bruttel, Lisa</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2014-07-04T08:08:29Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Bruttel, Lisa</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2014-07-04T08:08:29Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
