Some questions about the effect of trade concentration.
Languages of publication
Examinations of market structure and effects show that excessive trade concentration usually reduces competition on the market. It coincides with a longer-term rise in the price level, while both smaller commercial and production firms and the consumers find themselves in a less favourable market and bargaining position, and negative social effects appear. Preventing these effects is in the fundamental interest of social and economic policy.
