Abstract:     
Are major aluminum players colluding to drive up the price of this metal, crucial to the production of everything from beer cans to airplanes? A first look at the empirical evidence, combined with an analysis of the structure and incentives in this market, suggests that this possibility is worth the authoritiesā€™ attention. At the least, reform in this market seems to be in order.
