Because each firm has a relatively large share of the market, the actions of one firm do not have much effect on the decision making of other firms in an oligopolistic market.
53) It is reasonable to expect that if one firm in an oligopolistic market raises price, the its competitors will do the same so that all firms can earn increased revenues.
54) Mutual interdependence among firms is one of the key characteristics of an oligopoly market that distinguishes it from the other three major market structures.
55) Although Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are major players in the soft drink industry, the large number of other competing firms means that the industry is most accurately characterized as monopolistically competitive.
56) From the airlines' perspective, amenities competition is preferable to price competition because revenues are not adversely affected and it is easier to determine the strategies of one's competitors.
57) In comparing an oligopolistic firm to a perfectly competitive firm it is generally assumed that the price charged by the competitive firm will be higher than the price charged by the oligopolistic firm.
58) Pepsi and Coke have competed in the market for bottled water primarily on the basis of convenience and product differentiation as a means to avoid the negative effects on revenue that result from price competition.
59) One could argue that price competition among oligopolistic firms is highly likely to cause the revenues of individual firms to decline, while competition on the basis of product differentiation could cause demand, and total revenues, of individual firms to increase.
60) One of the surprising conclusions of many of the noncooperative models of oligopoly is that firms end up better off with the noncooperative outcome than they would by cooperating with one another.
61) The kinked demand curve model is based on the assumption that firms' pricing decisions are independent of one another because demand is determined by non-market forces.
