Abstract

Market concentration is often viewed as an important indicator of monopoly power, which makes it a key aspect for analyzing antitrust and other cases. A good understanding of what market concentration is and how it arises is crucial to policy decision making, especially in today's world where large corporations often tend to dominate the business scene. In this paper I investigate how factors accounting for technological change affect market concentration holding constant the effects of other recognized determinants of concentration.
