Inter-Firm Rivalry and Firm-Specific Price Elasticities in Deregulated Airline Markets

Inter-Firm Rivalry and Firm-Specific Price Elasticities in Deregulated Airline Markets

This paper examines the pattern of a firm's pricing rivalry and its associated price elasticities in a set of duopoly routes. The parameters of the marginal cost function are also estimated. This model allows for free variation of estimated "conduct parameters" and price elasticities across airline routes.

Economies of Scale in Bus transport: I. Some British Municipal Results

This study was prompted by the proposal to merge a number of municipal transport undertakings into Passenger transport Authorities. The authors analyse figures showing various working expenses per bus-mile, and find no evidence of scale economies. They point out, however, that the P.T.A.s will be larger than any undertaking in their sample, and that a different conclusion might conceivably be reached if data were available on costs per passenger-mile. Extension of one-man operation appears to offer greater scope for economies than amalgamation.
