ELECTING A PERSON WITH NO COWS IN A COW TOWN; IF THE TOWN ONLY HAD 10,000 COWS NO WAY ? AFTER THERE IS 1 MILLION COWS MAYBE FUN HUH? It is usually difficult to practice anti-competitive practices unless the parties involved have significant market power or government backing. Monopolies and oligopolies are often accused of, and sometimes found guilty of, anti-competitive practices. For this reason, company mergers are often examined closely by government regulators to avoid reducing competition in an industry. Although anti-competitive practices often enrich those who practice them, they are generally believed to have a negative effect on the economy as a whole, and to disadvantage competing firms and consumers who are not able to avoid their effects, generating a significant social cost. For these reasons, most countries havecompetition laws to prevent anti-competitive practices, and government regulators to aid the enforcement of these laws. The argument that anti-competitive practices have a negative effect on the economy arises from the belief that a freely functioning efficient market economy, composed of many market participants each of which has limited market power, will not permit monopoly profits to be earned...and consequently prices to consumers will be lower, and if anything there will be a wider range of products supplied. Some people[who? ] believe that the realities of the marketplace are sometimes more complex than this or similar theories of competition would suggest. For example, oligopolistic firms may achieve economies of scale that would elude smaller firms. Again, very large firms, whether quasi-monopolies or oligopolies, may achieve levels of sophistication e.g. in business process and/or planning (that benefit end consumers and) that smaller firms would not easily attain. There are undoubtedly industries (e.g. airlines and pharmaceuticals) in which the levels of investment are so high that only extremely large firms that may be quasi-monopolies in some areas of their businesses can survive. Many governments regard these market niches as natural monopolies , and believe that the inability to allow full competition is balanced by government regulation . However, the companies in these niches tend to believe that they should avoid regulation, as they are entitled to their monopoly position by fiat. In some cases, anti-competitive behavior can be difficult to distinguish from competition. For instance, a distinction must be made between product bundling , which is a legal market strategy, and product tying , which violates anti-trust law . Some advocates of laissez-faire capitalism (such as Monetarists , some Neoclassical economists , and the heterodox economists of the Austrian school ) reject the term, seeing all "anti-competitive behavior" as forms of competition that benefit consumers.
