09.11.11 - "Two-part tariffs."

Dear students,


I want to draw your attention to a recent article by Nikolaos Vettas on "Two-part tariffs." It gives a non-technical overview of the topic and is published in The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics. Online Edition. Eds.  Steven N. Durlauf and Lawrence E. Blume.

Palgrave Macmillan, 2011.

The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics Online can be accessed within the University of Giessen network. It is a very good ressource to get a first view on many different economic topics.

The entry on price discrimination also refers to the amusement park pricing strategy of Walter Oi from the early 1970ies (Oi, W. [1971] “A Disneyland Dilema: Two-Part tariffs for a Mickey Mouse Monopoly”, Quarterly Journal of Economics, 77–96) we discussed briefly in yesterday's lecture.

You also find interesting links to related articles on pricie discrimination by Lois Phlips and on the empirics of price discrimination by Frank Verboven. All the articles are non-technical and written by leading researchers in the respective fields.
