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 authorities’ attention. At the least, reform in this market seems to be in order.
