Industry, Market and Competition

The industrial sector is involved in many different markets, exhibiting a smaller or larger degree of competition.

  • Why are some companies small while others are large?
  • Is price competition forcing the large chains into offering cheap products, or is there room for stores that focus on quality?
  • How many companies should there be in the market to ensure effective competition?
  • What can the government do to prevent cartelization?
  • Is the regulation of power companies sufficient to ensure that the customer pays a reasonable price?
  • Does it matter if daycares and nursing homes are privately as opposed to publicly owned?
