Abstract

Italian Abstract: Il classico problema di ottimizzazione del profitto di un’impresa in monopolio viene trattato in relazione ai rendimenti di scala. Da ciò scaturiscono naturalmente le implicazioni sul break-even point, sull’inadeguatezza del marginal pricing nei casi monopolio naturale, sui risultati di buyer power in monopsonio.
