The Revision of Market Definition and Competition in the Thai Telecommunication Industry Project Conference
May 30, 2014
Dr. Mark Jamison and Dr. Don Stockdale (Partner, Bates& White), conducted research on telecommunications competition and composed two papers. One examined the Federal Communication Commission's approach to market definition and market analysis, and the other examined new developments in market analysis for mergers. Dr. Jamison delivered sessions at the Thai Telecommunication Industry Project Conference on how market competition is examined and how mergers are analyzed in the U.S., the complications of defining markets in monopolization or dominance cases where there is an issue of the appropriate benchmark price, the use of critical loss or critical elasticity of demand to define markets, and the challenges of analyzing competition where technology and industry changes are uncertain.
