a. Use your knowledge of monopoly pricing practices to explain why advertising rates and newspaper circulation prices were likely to increase and jobs were likely to be lost, following adoption of this joint operating agreement. Use company information to support your argument
b. In many cases, classified ads to sell real estate in a local newspaper can cost five to ten times as much as a similar ad used to announce a garage sale. Use your knowledge of price discrimination to explain how local newspaper monopolies generate enormous profits from selling classified advertising that varies in price according to the value of the item advertised.
c. Widely differing fares for business and vacation travellers on the same flight have led some to accuse the airlines of price discrimination. Do airfare differences or local newspaper classified-ad rate differences provide stronger evidence of price discrimination?
